Medvedev blamed Saakashvili for the conflict in South Ossetia
Deputy Chairman of the Russian Security Council Dmitry Medvedev, in an interview with TASS and RT, blamed the conflict in South Ossetia in August 2008 on ex-President of Georgia Mikheil Saakashvili and the country’s political leadership.
According to the politician, it was the head of state who made the decision to initiate aggression, even with an understanding of the US role in this matter.
“It was clear that he was mentally unstable, this also affected what happened,” Medvedev said, noting Saakashvili’s “inflated ego.”
Earlier, the deputy chairman of the Security Council called the actions of ex-President of Georgia Mikheil Saakashvili and his supporters the reason for the war in the country in 2008. According to the politician, the irresponsible behavior of the state leader under the influence of the West provoked the conflict 15 years ago.
