SOUTH OSSETIA, GEORGIA

CURRENT SITUATION

A ceasefire holds between Georgia and its South Ossetian rebels (who are supported by Russia). The region remains unstable, however, because the underlying issue of Ossetian separatist aspirations has not been resolved, and because the conflict has evolved into a proxy war between Russia and NATO.
