Tskhinvali has been fully liberated

Russia says Georgian forces expelled from S.Ossetian capital

Russia’s peacekeeping command said on Saturday the country’s troops have driven Georgian forces from the capital of the separatist republic of South Ossetia.

“Tskhinvali has been fully liberated,” a spokesman said.

The city has suffered major destruction since the start of Georgia’s ground and air onslaught that began early on Friday. Russia says 1,500 people have so far died in the violence, and 30,000 South Ossetians have fled across the border into Russia.

You can act to change and control your life; and the procedure, the process is its own reward. - Amelia Earhart
