MOSCOW, August 7 (Itar-Tass) - A vigil in memory of South Ossets and Russians who were killed during the Georgian aggression in 2008 began at the South Ossetian embassy in Moscow.
The state flag of the republic at the embassy building was lowered at 23:35 Moscow time on Wednesday. People who came to the embassy lit candles and placed flowers at a makeshift obelisk. At exactly that time Georgian cannons began shelling peaceful Tskhinval five years ago, an embassy official said.
A memorial service for South Ossetian citizens and Russian soldiers who defended Tskhinval will begin in the Cathedral of Christ the Savior at 11:00 on August 8. From 14:00 to 18:00 the embassy accepts condolences from diplomatic missions accredited in Russia, from public organizations and the Ossetian community.
