South Ossetia

Georgia has launched a full-scale offensive to gain control of the breakaway region of South Ossetia, while Russia's response remains unclear. A couple of years ago I was actually in South Ossetia, though only for about an hour, when my ignorance of the Georgian alphabet caused me to get on a marshrutka (minivan, sherut) to Tskhinvali instead of Tbilisi.
