“As the president and government in Georgia have changed, the person involved in the crimes in the territory of South Ossetia have lost their positions, and the Investigative Committee is considering presenting to them the charges and putting them on the international wanted list,” the source said.

The events in August 2008 in South Ossetia claimed 162 lives of civilians, 255 were injured. Russia’s ten peacekeepers were killed, and 42 were wounded.
