American instructors trained Georgian militants to cold-bloodedly kill women and children in Tskhinvali – priest
Moscow, August 27, Interfax - Defenseless women and children became victims of Georgian militants during their attacks on Tskhinvali, rector of the Alanian representation in Moscow Hegumen Georgy (Bestayev).
Fr. Georgy was in South Ossetia from August 8 to August 20.
"As we know, hundreds of American instructors trained Georgian troops and Georgian special forces on the territory of Georgia. It's evident that Americans trained them to kill mostly women, old men and children," the priest said in his interview to Interfax-Religion.
According to him, "Georgian aggressors" in Tskhinvali were "even more cruel" than Zviad Gamsakhurdia's militants in early 1990s; they shelled the basements full of people, fired at children who ran to meet them.
"They told how Georgian militants broke into the flat, raped a daughter, who was a young beautiful girl, in front of her mother then took off the mother's head in her presence and killed the girl," the priest told.
According to him, Georgian contingent in Iraq "is specially trained to kill in cold blood." Just like soldiers of the US Army in Vietnam "cold-bloodedly murdered women and children," the priest said.
"It's hard to forgive such brutalities of Georgian aggressors. Thus, Ossetians have made their political conclusion: we will never live with Georgians in one state," the Moscow Alanian representation rector said.
