Peacekeeping[edit]

How did the Russian "peacekeeping" forces gey their mandate to be in Ossetia in the first place ? Lysy (talk) 07:38, 11 August 2008 (UTC)

"In 1992, Georgia was forced to accept a ceasefire to avoid a large scale confrontation with Russia. The government of Georgia and South Ossetian separatists reached an agreement to avoid the use of force against one another, and Georgia pledged not to impose sanctions against South Ossetia. However, the Georgian government still retains control over substantial portions of South Ossetia, including the town of Akhalgori.[22] A peacekeeping force of Ossetians, Russians and Georgians was established. On November 6, 1992, the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) set up a Mission in Georgia to monitor the peacekeeping operation "South_Ossetia" — Wikipedia, Tunafish (talk) 08:19, 11 August 2008 (UTC)
