On Thursday, August 7th, Georgian armed forces
entered into the breakaway region of South Ossetia to assert Georgian
governance of the region – a de facto (yet largely unrecognized)
independent republic that has support from neighboring Russia. Russia
responded on August 8th by sending its own military into Georgia – not
only into region of South Ossetia – but also into the nearby breakaway
republic of Abkhazia and deeper into Georgia itself. Many Airstrikes
and ground skirmishes have taken place since, with several parties
calling for a cease-fire, but no agreement as yet. Those paying the
highest price for the war are the South Ossetian civilians, which may
have suffered (depending on who is reporting) between 100 and 2,000
deaths to date. (29 photos total)
