Prime Minister of Georgia Bidzina Ivanishvili admitted responsibility of Georgia for the outbreak of the war in August of 2008. He stated that the actions of the authorities of the country before crossing the border of Georgia by Russian forces were inadequate. This statement will have tangible consequences, first of all, for President Mikhail Saakashvili.
"The political noose" around the Georgian President Mikheil Saakashvili's neck is getting tighter. He is not yet being investigated, but the new authorities have already talked about the possibility of his interrogation about the events of 2008. The country may begin a new investigation into the five-day war. Prime Minister Ivanishvili spoke in favor of conducting a second investigation of the facts.
During a meeting with the editors of a number of Georgian media outlets, Ivanishvili called the actions of the authorities in August of 2008 inadequate. Georgia's acknowledgement of at least part of its responsibility for the war could seriously affect the country's foreign policy, and above all, the relationship with Russia.

sorry, but I don’t believe Pravda (the Truth in Roski) when they talk about the war with Georgia...
Sounds a lot like those dastardly Poles who forced the Nazis to overrun their country in 1939.
You have a pro Putin (Russian) re-alignment purge similar to the Ukraine going on here. Unless they (reformer Presidents) get the hell out of the country they ran (like the Ukraine) they’ll wind up in some political prison (if they’re lucky) or dead.
I know that Georgia claims 68 square miles of Tennessee, but I couldn’t remember them actually going to war over it in 2008.
Jeez, not another one of these “Who Started the Civil War” threads.
Wait...wha...there's another Georgia...hold on...
