Prisoners' Deal was Made
On August 19, 2008 the exchange of the Georgian-Russian War prisoners took place at Igoeti, on a halfway between the town of Gori and Tbilisi. The principle set by the Georgian side – all to all – was respected by the Russian side. Former Georgian war prisoners declare they were treated awfully, tortured and miss respected by the South Ossetian separatist formations and Russian militaries. Georgian soldiers were transported by the emergency cars under the supervision of doctors. Georgian side handed over those soldiers, arrested after the crash of the Russian military jets near the city Gori.
