80% of all structures in the capital of South Ossetia, Tskhinvali, suffered damage as a result of the Georgian attack on South Ossetia, stated mayor of Tskhinvali Robert Guliyev at a press conference at the international press center "Tskhinvali - 2008." As an IA Regnum correspondent reports, Guliyev noted that "currently, we are working hard to survey all homes." "You know that the city suffered bombardment from "Grad" rocket artillery systems, in addition to mortars and artillery fire. As a result of this, 80% of all available housing in the city suffered damage to roofs; as for the premises themselves, a minimum of 60% were damaged.Virtually all residences in the southern suburbs of the city and virtually all private neighborhoods suffered significant damage," said Guliyev. He said that everything was being done to provide victims with the basic need of temporary housing.
