International Court of Justice/International Criminal Court
YEAR 20010
Te judge Ahmed Yusuf of the International Court of Justice performing a well known competence in relation to International Law, and after reviewing the case of: 
I.: Application of the International Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial

Genocide is a deliberate destruction,completely or partially, of an ethnic, religious, or national group, say the reference-books. And according to his point of view, this is what Georgia has been doing with Ossetians over the centuries. He is aware that Russian forces attacked people from georgia, but this was because they were responding a previous attack from Georgian soldiers. One of many solutions that this case can have is to punisheconomically both countries as well as paying the damages they both generate.

Judge Ahmed Yusuf

The 2008 South Ossetia War or Georgian War was an armed conflict in August 2008 between Georgia on one side, and Russia, including separatist government of South Ossetia and Abkhazia on the other. It left inhabited part ofSouth Ossetia under de-facto control of a Russian-backed internationally unrecognised government.[45][46] Nearly half ethnic Georgian and Ossetian -inhabited parts of South Ossetia remained under the control of Georgia (Akhalgori district, and most villages surrounding Tskhinvali). A similar situation existed in Abkhazia after the War in Abkhazia (1992–1993). The increasing tensions escalatedduring the summer months of 2008. On 5 August, Russia vowed to defend South Ossetia.[47]
During the night of 7 to 8 August 2008, Georgia launched a large-scale military attack against South Ossetia, in an attempt to reconquer the territory.[48] The following day Russia reacted by deploying combat troops in South Ossetia and launching bombing raids deep into Georgia.[49][50][51] Russian andOssetian soldiers clashed with Georgian soldiers in the four-day Battle of Tskhinvali, the main battle of the war. On August 9, Russian naval forces blockaded a part of the Georgian coast and landed marines on the Abkhaz coast.[52] Russian and Abkhaz forces opened a second front by attacking the Kodori Gorge, held by Georgia.[53] and entered western parts of Georgia's interior. After five days of heavyfighting, the Georgian forces were routed, enabling the Russians to enter uncontested Georgia and occupy the cities of Poti, Gori, Senaki, and Zugdidi.[54]
After mediation by the French presidency of the European Union, the parties reached a preliminary ceasefire agreement on 12 August, signed by Georgia on 15 August in Tbilisi and by Russia on 16 August in Moscow. On 12 August, PresidentMedvedev had already ordered a halt to Russian military operations,[55] but fighting did not stop immediately.[56]
After signing the ceasefire agreement, Russia pulled most of its troops out of uncontested Georgia, but established buffer zones around Abkhazia and South Ossetia and also created check-points in Georgia's interior, (Poti, Senaki, Perevi). On 26 August 2008, Russia recognised theindependence of South Ossetia and Abkhazia. Russia completed its withdrawal from uncontested Georgia on 8 October, but, as of 2009[update], Russian forces remain stationed in Abkhazia and South Ossetia under bilateral agreements with the corresponding governments.[57] However, according to a number of European and US sources,[who?] Russia has not complied with the peace agreement because Georgia lostcontrol over some of what Georgia's government considers as its territories.[58][59][60]
A number of incidents occurred in both conflict zones in the months after the war ended. As of 2010[update], tensions between the belligerents remain high.
