Georgia deployed troops to South Ossetia on the night of August 7-8, 2008, and tried to take control of the region.

"The Russian Federation has not implemented its global obligations despite constant calls from the worldwide community. and has further reinforced its illegal military presence on the ground", the ministry said in a statement.
