The 8th June of 2008 conflict between Russia and Georgia certainly left a huge mark not only on the history of these countries, but on the democratic world history as well. The conflict, with the so-called Eight-day war, although it never was eight days and is never going to be, reminded history still continues.

After russians bombing, an elderly georgian in one of the Gori city gardens, carrying his recently dead neighbour's clothes, encouraged me - "Show these things to the rest of the world. Everybody must know what could still happen here in the 21th century!"

This war forced us to think about our common human position - there are no local problems left in today's modern world. Touched by globalism, every single conflict affects us all.
