South Ossetia was the scene of bloody military conflict in August, after Georgia launched a military assault. Since then an uneasy peace was established, EU monitors were deployed, and Russia officially recognised South Ossetia’s independence. But is there a risk of a renewed bloodshed?

We’ll be talking about it with the President of South Ossetia, Eduard Kokoyty.
