Georgia is preparing seriously for a war - President of South Ossetia

Today in Tskhinval President of South Ossetia Leonid Tibilov has declared at the meeting with the co-chairs of the Geneva discussions that the Georgian side is conducting intensive preparations for a war around the perimeter of the border with South Ossetia.

"We have reliable information about the current intentions of Georgia. In particular, in the area adjacent to the territory of the Leningor, the Georgian Ministry of Defense is building fortifications. In all the border Georgian villages are constructed warehouses for storage of small arms, "- said the president.

According to him, all these actions lead to conclusions that they are directed against the people of South Ossetia, who two days later will mark the 22 anniversary of the formation of the Republic.

"For all these years we have been expressing the principles of entrenchment of our statehood and good relations with other countries. We have always been following peace. War will never lead to anything good; there are victims on both sides. And we have to protect our people,"- emphasized the president.

He has underscored that today is not the time for "saber-rattling", but for those provocations, which are expected from Georgia, will be responsible its leaders.
