An incomplete map of Russian bombings

Today and yesterday Russia bombed numerous cities, villages and strategic objects in Georgia.

Hundreds are dead or injured, many people left homeless or fled their homes, buildings and strategic objects are destroyed.

The targets included main Georgian port Poti, cities of Senaki, Marneuli, Khobi, Gori, numerous villages all around the country, as well as Vaziani base in the south Georgia and its surroundings.

Most of the aircrafts entered from Russian territory, while one entered from a Russian military base in Armenia.

Each target was attacked many times.

I tried to make a simple map to show just some of the main locations bombed by Russia.

This map only shows places populated by peaceful citizens, where most intensive, repeated bombings took place.

    Sweden’s Foreign Minister Carl Bildt also demanded a “very strong response” from the EU, and raised comparisons between Russian actions and those of Nazi Germany. He said: “No state has the right to intervene militarily in the territory of another state simply because there are individuals there with a passport issued by that state or who are nationals of the state.

    “Attempts to apply such a doctrine have plunged Europe into war in the past… And we have reason to remember how Hitler used this very doctrine little more than half a century ago to undermine and attack substantial parts of central Europe.” (http://virtualcollector.blogspot.com/2008/08/georgia-pulls-troops-out-of-south.html)

    That’s EXACTLY what Georgian officials were referring to much earlier.
    President Saakashvili on June 9, 2008 told Pais, that “Russian behavior exist “bad precedents in the past century that had finished with great tragedies”. As an example he mentions “the Sudetes”* (the annexation by Hitler of that region populated by German in 1938 with the approval of France, the United Kingdom and Italy). Moscow has created “artificial problem” in the separatist territories, distributing passports, and “now insists on the right to control the zone to protect the Russian population. The thing is not thus”, he sentences.

    Saakashvili would want that the EU not only be the guarantor for his plan of peace for the abkhaz, but also supports his policy. As such support, he proposes that Brussels “denies the visa to the high civil servants who visit Abjazia without permission of Georgia”.

    You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I
    find this topic to be actually something that I think I would never understand.
    It seems too complex and very broad for me.

    I’m looking forward for your next post, I’ll try to get the hang
    of it!
