The Hidden War (History of South Ossetia & Abkhazia)

Dandelion Salad

RussiaToday

At the beginning of the 20th Century, Georgia, South Ossetia and Abkhazia were provinces in the Russian Empire. In 1917 Georgia left Russia, but South Ossetia and Abkhazia refused to join the new Georgian Democratic Republic. At the time, the first Georgian-Abkhazian and Georgian-Ossetian conflict flared up. RT investigates this complicated territorial issue in a new XL Report.

  5. One of the big lies that the MSM and the politicians of the EU and US seem to have been perpetrating recently is that the Georgia situation is the same as other Eurasian situations, in which there could concievably be some kind of separatism dispute that could potentially involve Russia. It isn’t the same, because the actual status of South Ossetia and Abkhazia has never been settled. They aren’t “breakaway regions”. They are regions that have never been fully incorporated into Georgia at all, since the breakup of the Soviet Union. Their status has been in dispute, on the ground and according to official treaty. I think Russia is correct that Georgia, by attacking South Ossetia, effectively settled the matter.
