Five years have passed since the August War of 2008. The Russian intervention cost the lives of 228 civilians, 170 military personnel, and 14 policemen, with 8 soldiers listed missing in action. Up to 150 000 people were forced to leave their homes, with around 30 000 remaining in exile to this day. The Georgian President is certain that the events of the 2008 war will be judged by Georgia’s history and its future generations. On the other hand, the current Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev is convinced that his move to recognise the independence of Abkhazia and South Ossetia while serving as President was the correct one.
