Machetera’s Russia correspondent, Anton Dech, writes:
There are some more thoughts featuring the conflict.
I tried to remember Ossetian people which are well known in the world. Maybe it is interesting. Only two came to my mind.
Valery Gergiev, principal conductor of the London Symphony Orchestra. I have found his interview to BBC with his opinion about the conflict.
Vitaly Kaloev; he killed an air traffic controller whose error led to the collision of two aircrafts in Switzerland. His wife and two daughters died in this accident.
That somehow characterizes the Caucasus mentality. I can add that Kaloev was a highly educated and successful person.
A person who threw grenade at Bush during his visit to Georgia was Armenian.
