South Ossetia: stuck between a rock and a hard place?

S.Ossetia will always depend on the more populated Russia’s N.Ossetia, as well as Georgia, due to its geographical location, which is in the middle of the Georgian territory, says journalist and author Thomas De Waal.

De Waal argues, “When the passions die down and political differences are sorted out, South Ossetia will have strong links with both North Ossetia and Georgia and the sovereignty question will be postponed for the future.”
