Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Maybe I'm missing something here - but isn't it the Russians who are asking both sides to renounce the use of violence? Then why are only they being asked to stop?

As my boss has done a good amount of work in North Ossetia, which has long & deep ties with the Russians, so I wonder if that is true with South Osetia? I suspect there is a lot of convoluted history involved.

Can anyone say more about what is up with Georgia? Why are their claims to these countries so important that they are willing to risk war?
