That is a blatant lie and you should stop believing the lies coming from Putin's propaganda efforts, that already been acknowledged as being lies
from Russia itself.
44-45 dead in Ossetia:
bull#, as these sources have no evidence to back up , not even witness testimonies
there is a thread, I had started in regards to exposing HRW lies and propagnada with relation to Ossetia
Shameful lies,propaganda and coverup by HRW of Genocide in ossetia exposed
The South Ossetians claim 1,400 dead, thus far, most of them victims of the Georgian assault on Tskhinvali, and Vladimir Putin went so far as to
accuse the Georgians of launching a "genocide." According to the BBC, however, "Russia failed to back up its claims of Georgian atrocities."
Not that the West is all that interested in airing the evidence. As Variety put it in a piece on how this war is being reported,
"Coverage in the U.S. and Europe is leaning heavily toward reports on the Georgian casualties of Russian bombing over the weekend. Few details are
being given about the thousands said to have been killed when Georgia attacked Tskhinvali, the capital of South Ossetia, on Thursday and Friday."
The blatant media bias displayed by the "mainstream" news organizations is more than matched by the shameful cover-up of Georgian atrocities by the
mainline "human rights" organizations, first and foremost Human Rights Watch. In the most brazen display of willful ignorance since Walter Duranty
overlooked the Soviet gulags, HRW spokeswoman Anna Neistat told the Guardian that Ossetian claims of Georgian atrocities were "suspicious":
"The figure of 2,000 people killed is very doubtful. Our findings so far do not in any way confirm the Russian statistics. On the contrary, they
suggest the numbers are exaggerated."
Neistat avers that no more than 44 were killed and around 200 were wounded in the Georgian attack on Tskhinvali. Perhaps she should talk to
International Red Cross spokeswoman Anna Nelson, who reports area hospitals "overflowing" with the dead and the wounded.
and yes on more on HRW propagnada, look at what it does , claims it was stated by a doctor(whose identity they claim is secret and cannot be
HRW called the Russian death toll figure of 2,000 unfounded, citing a doctor who said that between August 6 to 12 the hospital treated 273 wounded,
more military than civilian. The doctor also said that 44 bodies had been brought to the hospital since the fighting began, both military and
civilian. According to HRW, "the doctor was adamant that the majority of people killed in the city had been brought to the hospital before being
and as usual , the western media and HRW claims are flimsy at best , as they do not disclose the identity of so called alleged doctor
which , seems that HRW is spewinf propaganda , like other western media outlets , which are spewing one sided propaganda in favour of WEst
here are some eyewitness testimonies :
Fleeing resident Lyudmila Ostayeva, 50, told AP news agency: "I saw bodies lying on the streets, around ruined buildings, in cars. It's
impossible to count them now. There is hardly a single building left undamaged." International Red Cross spokeswoman Anna Nelson said it had
received reports that hospitals in Tskhinvali were "overflowing" with casualties.
bodies lying around buildings as several witnesses stated and Red Cross and UNO have different things to say , rather than HRW version , which does
not even name the alleged doctor
and several others , but HRW and other groups fail to provide proof for the flimsy claims they make ....
they have not named the alleged doctor firstly, on whose basis they make

A 40-year-old woman stands in the middle of a footpath and bursts into tears after arriving with a convoy of refugees in the embattled Georgian
enclave of South Ossetia.
"When the Russians arrived, we were so happy, and after they bombed them [the Georgians]," said the woman called Meri, referring to the Russian
assault and air raids on Georgia that forced Tbilisi to pull back its troops from South Ossetia.
She arrived at Java, about 20 kilometres from the main city of Tskhinvali, with a group of refugees, mostly women, escorted by Russian soldiers.
They escaped from the "horror", the one word they all used to describe the scenes of attacks by Georgian troops, battling against Russian and
Ossetian rebel forces over the past three days.
One woman told how a family of four including two children tried to flee from a Georgian tank but it "fired on their car and they were all burned"
to death, said Angela, who like all the refugees only gave her first name.
In another incident, a woman eight months pregnant and two family members fleeing from the city under attack were hit by tank fire and "nothing
remained of them," Angela said.
She saw the Georgian tanks roll into Tskhinvali, the soldiers shouting "Hail Saakashvili," who is the president of Georgia.
"They destroyed the city," added Inna, 33, who said she could not understand how the Georgian troops "could do that to civilians."
"You see your friend's home burning and there's nothing you can do. You just watch and cry, it's a genocide," Inna said.
An old woman among the refugees said all she had left was the dress she was wearing.
"My house is destroyed," she said.
At Java, a refugee camp of tents is being set up in a stadium by the Russian Ministry of Emergency Services, Education Minister Zamira Giova said.
look at what eye witnesses of the geniocide are saying and yet we have have organzations like HRW pulling out stupid claims that they cannot even
and yes there are thousands of Ossetian refugees testimonies of a full scale genocide by Georigan forces , to which Western media has turned 'deaf'
