    As with his Ossetians background (he was raised in Ossetia and is married to an Ossetians musician) he confirms what was recently remarked by dangerous Mr. Putin:
    Ukraine pursues the same policy against its own people that cost Georgia to lose territory after then-leader Mikhail Saakashvili’s war on Ossetia, Russian President Vladimir Putin said, warning Kiev not to go down the same road.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Valery_Gergiev
    Valery Abisalovich Gergiev, is a Russian conductor and opera company director of Ossetian origin.
    During the 2008 South Ossetia war, Gergiev accused the Georgian government of massacring ethnic Ossetians, triggering the conflict with Russia.[14] He came to Tskhinvali and conducted a concert near the ruined building of the South Ossetian Parliament as tribute to the victims of the war.[15]

    Gergiev has been, according to Alex Ross in The New Yorker, "a prominent supporter of the current Russian regime. Last year [2012], in a television ad for Putin's third Presidential campaign, he said, 'One needs to be able to hold oneself presidentially, so that people reckon with the country. I don't know if it's fear? Respect? Reckoning.'"[16]

    A bit of a trip report would help. Otherwise it's just pictures of stuff.
