Former speaker of the Georgian Parliament Nino Burjanadze on 8 August said that the armed conflict in South Ossetia was started by the actions of then Georgian President Mikhail Saakashvili.
Vladimir Putin visited the neighbouring Republic three times: in 2009, 2011 and 2013. During his visit as Prime Minister eight years ago was signed the intergovernmental agreement on assistance to Abkhazia.
In August 2008, the Georgian authorities attempted by force to regain control over the territory of South Ossetia. Moscow has provided the self-proclaimed Republic military assistance, after which Georgian troops were driven out of the territory of the region. After the so-called five-day war, Russia recognized the independence of South Ossetia and Abkhazia.
