Aggression of Ossetian separatists
After Medvedev's decision to recognize their “state”, Ossetian separatists have become particularly aggressive. According to reports they are looting Georgian villages and forcing people to leave their homes. The village of Shereti is already empty, its ejected population having encamped to Gori. According to a statement from Shida Kartli Governor Lado Vardzelashvili, the Georgian police needs to enter those villages immediately in order to protect the local population and establish basic order there.
