MOSCOW, October 15 (Itar-Tass) —— President Dmitry Medvedev said he was hopeful that Russia will not have to face another trial like the peace-enforcement operation against Georgia in August 2008.
“Everyone learnt his lesson from that challenge, and Russia emerged out of that conflict with dignity. I wish that no leader, be it Russia, Georgia or any other country, had to make such decisions. But sometimes they have to be made, and one has to be prepared for that,” Medvedev said at a meeting with his supporters on Saturday, October 15.
“What happened back then was a serious trial for me,” he admitted. “Despite certain perceptions and propaganda, this burden always lies on one person, and it is him who will be accused or thanked afterwards,” the president said.
“I do hope very much that we will not have such trials again in the next ten years,” he added.
