"Saakashvili tricked us into this war" -- Captured Georgian soldiers

Саакашвили призвал нас на войну обманом: пленные грузинские солдаты

Captured Georgian soldiers are beginning to tell their story. As "Vesti" reports, they are being interrogated in Vladikavkaz. The investigative commission is also interrogating residents of Tskhinvali with the goal to collect evidence of the Georgian forces' activities in South Ossetia.

"I didn't want to go to war. I'm not a volunteer, I was called up," the channel cites one prisoner saying. Video clips have been posted on Russian websites in which Georgian reservist prisoners claim that they were being called up before martial law had been declared in Georgia, supposedly for training, but instead of ending up at the training grounds, they ended up in Tskhinvali--at war.

Earlier, South Ossetia released a statement that it had captured 190 Georgian servicemen.
