Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin estimated on Monday that the damage
Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin estimated on Monday that the damage to South Ossetia following Georgia's attack on the breakaway republic is around $1 billion.

Summing up a report on the situation in the Georgia's self-proclaimed republic, submitted by Regional Development Minister Dmitry Kozak, Putin said: "More than $1 billion. This is the tentative cost of the damage caused by the act of aggression."

Georgia attacked South Ossetia on August 8 in an attempt to take back the separatist republic, which split from Georgia in the early 1990s.

Most people living in South Ossetia have Russian citizenship and Moscow subsequently launched an operation to "force Georgia to accept peace." The operation was concluded on August 12.
