The Alledged Massacres in S-Ossetia

Russian Human Rights Watch has been inside South Ossetia and says that the allegations of genocide and massmurders are false. Doctors and personell inside South Ossetia estimate the number of casualties after Georgian shelling to be tens, Tatiana Lokshina says. Not houndreds or, as Russians claims , thousands.

For those of you reading Russian, the whole report can be found here: http://www.novayagazeta.ru/news/304956.html

Human Rights Watch reports:

Human Rights Watch researchers in South Ossetia on August 12, 2008, saw ethnic Georgian villages still burning from fires set by South Ossetian militias, witnessed looting by the militias, and learned firsthand of the plight of ethnic Ossetian villagers who had fled Georgian soldiers during the Georgian-Russian conflict over the breakaway region of South Ossetia.

In South Ossetia, Human Rights Watch researchers traveling on the evening of August 12 on the road from the town of Java to Tskhinvali, the capital of South Ossetia, witnessed terrifying scenes of destruction in four villages that used to be populated exclusively by ethnic Georgians. According to the few remaining local residents, South Ossetian militias that were moving along the road looted the Georgian villages and set them on fire. Human Rights Watch saw numerous vehicles carrying South Ossetian militia members, as well as Russian military transports moving in the direction of Tskhinvali.
