RT war documentary screened at UN

In New York the victims of the Georgia-South Ossetia conflict have been remembered at the UN General Assembly which held its 63rd session.

A special report by RT's Oksana Boyko entitled 'A City of Desolate Mothers', which investigates the aftermath of the war, has been shown to the audience at a commemoration event.

Russia's ambassador to the UN, Vitaly Churkin, has called on the United States to issue visas for officials from South Ossetia and Abkhazia so they can attend a Security Council meeting in early October.

The mandate of the UN observer mission in the Caucasus expires next month and Russia has insisted its extension is impossible without hearing from all parties in the conflict.
