“They don’t want to live in one state with Saakashvili”
Aleksandr Mirsky, a Latvian member of European Parliament who witnessed the fighting, knows exactly who's side he's on.
“I would like to ask those who are defending Saakashvili’s position a question. Have you been to South Ossetia? Have you seen what the Georgian army has done to Tskhinval?
I’ve been there and I witnessed all those atrocities, and that is a crime against the South Ossetian people. I’ve been talking to many Ossetian and Abkhazian people. They don’t want to live in one state with Saakashvili,” he said.
