Remember those terrible days in the main square of Tskhinval gathered hundreds of citizens. There is not one family untouched by the events of August 2008. Women and children hiding in the basement, and the men stood up to defend the homeland. The battle went all over the city. The local militia managed to knock out a few tanks drove into town. The ammunition exploded with such force that a multi-ton tank the tower a third was included in the concrete Foundation. The tower now stands here as a monument.

Those who tried to leave the city, were shot at close range. Dozens of cars with women and children was blown up. By the end of the second day in Tskhinvali burned almost all the houses. There was no water, no food, no electricity, no phone. When many had lost hope.
