Dmitry Medvedev calls Georgian ceasefire statement "lies"

Дмитрий Медведев назвал "враньем" заявления Грузии о прекращении огня

Russian President Dmitry Medvedev refutes Georgian President Mikhail Saakashvili's claim that Georgia has not fired any shots in the last two days. Medvedev referred to "these lies" today, August 12th, in a joint press conference with French President Nicolas Sarkozy. According to the Russian president, for the past two days, the Georgian side has fired on the South Ossetians with artillery and small arms; South Ossetian residents are among the victims. "As for the Georgian president's statement that a ceasefire has been observed for the past two days--these are lies," said Medvedev at a press conference in Moscow after talks with the French president.
