RT has obtained a video which shows Georgian troops firing on civilian buildings in the South Ossetian capital of Tskhinval.
The mobile phone footage was apparently recorded by a Georgian soldier as he operated a machine gun. His cry of 'Yoo hoo!' as he fired on the building reminded some viewers of 'a child playing a video game' - but they were real bullets and real human targets.
First victims of Ossetian War identified
A complete list of all the victims of the conflict is not yet available as information is still being collected by South Ossetian authorities. The following are the names, dates of birth, causes of death and burial places of South Ossetian citizens so far confirmed killed in the fighting between the 7th and 12th of August 2008.
1. Ataev Alan Muratovich, 1971 D. O. B. Killed during the conflict. Buried in courtyard of apartment block.
2. Kelehsaev Murzaba V. , 1944 D. O. B. Shot by a Georgian sniper. Buried in Tbet village.

Hey thanks for that the RT version was a drag.
So after watching this a little clearer I can say it really shows nothing about who it is where it is and who they are shooting at.
How can we even be sure its in Georgia?

Also, anyone who thinks that russian troops would behave differently is fooling themselves. This is how it is on all sides.

War is a nasty buisness..no matter who is pulling the trigger.
There is plenty of documented evidence that soldiers from every country on this planet, including the US, has fired at innocents.
