Georgia - Russia - Conflict in Georgia

A displaced Georgian is seen through a window in Gori, Georgia on Aug. 18, 2008. She had been hiding in a basement for one week. Violence has escalated in South Ossetia, a breakaway province of Georgia and one of the "frozen conflicts" of the former Soviet Union. The conflict heated up dramatically in the early morning of August 8, 2008. Georgia declared that it intended to restore constitutional order and launched a large-scale military offensive. Russia sent additional troops to South Ossetia, saying they were reinforcements to Russian peacekeepers who are in the area to monitor a 1992 ceasefire between Georgian and South Ossetian forces.
