Russian Defence Ministry: Peacemaking Operation in South Ossetia Is One of World’s Most Successful
Russia’s peacemaking operation in the Georgian-Ossetian conflict zone was one of the most successful in the world, the Russian Defense Ministry said on Friday.
"By its effectiveness, this operation is considered one of the most successful peacemaking missions in the world, which helped dozens of thousands of families return to peaceful life", the Russian Defence Ministry said in a statement.
According to military analysts, the successful experience of this operation which was led by the current Russian Defense Minister Sergey Shoigu was effectively used in settling other conflicts.
Today is the 25th anniversary of the launch of the first Russian peacemaking operation in the Georgian-Ossetian conflict zone.
