“The integrity of Georgia will be restored and it will be a successful, democratic and free country,” US Ambassador to Tbilisi Jan Kelly promised after visiting the Georgian village of Ergneti near Tskhinvali.

The American ambassador visited the local church, as well as the “Museum of Occupation”. “The occupation will not last long, and these barbed fences will not stay for long,” says Jan Kelly.

On August 8, 2008 Georgian troops launched an offensive on South Ossetia. Tskhinvali was hit by a missile attack from multiple rocket fire systems. In addition, Georgian troops attacked Russian peacekeepers who, under the mandate of the OSCE, supported peace in the region. 25 Russian servicemen were killed. Moscow introduced troops to South Ossetia to protect civilians from Georgian aggression. Five days later the military operations were completed. Russia recognized the independence of Georgia from South Ossetia and Abkhazia.
