Medvedev on Georgia anniversary


Russian President Dmitry Medvedev is expected to visit the breakaway region of South Ossetia a year after violent clashes in the region.

Mr Medvedev blamed the fighting between Russia and neighbouring Georgia on "Georgian aggression against South Ossetia".

But he promised to "talk about those lessons which we have learned since then".
