National Flags have been lowered in Georgia in memory of the soldiers and civilians fallen in the Russia-Georgia war of August, 2008.

The chairman of the parliament with the MPs observed one minute’s silence today in memory of the people killed during the Russian intervention four years ago.

Georgians recalled the hardest days of the tragedy – the 7th and the 8th of August – when Russia carried out its aggression against the country.

Pre-election campaign has been suspended in Georgia for two days, due to the anniversary of the war,

188 civilians, 168 militants and 16 police officers of Georgia were killed in the August, 2008 war.

By the Kremlin order, a military operation for Georgia’s intervention started from the country`s occupied territories. Consolidation of military forces in occupied Abkhazia and Tskhinvali Region started few weeks before the intervention. The Kremlin justified its intervention claiming that Russian peacekeepers were attacked in Tskhinvali.

Russia continues to occupy Georgia`s territories – Abkhazia and Tskhinvali region – and to tries to achieve recognition of independence of these territories from different countries, but still with no result.
