Ingushetiya.ru: 08/26/08 Protest of Ingush and Georgian nationals at the European Parliament in memory of Ingush victims of 1992.

Over 600 of Ingush civilians were tortured, raped, and killed; the entire Ingush population of Prigorodni District was ethnically cleansed, over 60,000 of Ingush nationals became refugees, thousands were taken hostages by Ossetians (including the ones who were taken to the now-famous Beslan school), hundreds of Ingush homes were burned by Ossetian gangs or destroyed by Russian heavy artillery fire, the Ingush property was looted.
Ingushetiya.ru: “On 08/26/2008 The initiative-taking group is preparing the protest near the building of the European Parliament in Brussels, Belgium. The purpose of the protest is to attract the attention of the world’s community to the events of 1992 when the entire Ingush population of the North Ossetia, were ethnically cleansed. Hundreds of Ingush nationals were murdered, hundreds were tortured, their houses destroyed, looted, and hostages taken. The crimes against the Ingush citizens were committed by Ossetian paramilitaries after the heavy armored Russian troops captured the Ingush territory of Prigorodny District.”
August 18, 2008. The President of Russian Federation, Dmitriy Medvedev, arrived to the North Ossetian city of Vladikavkaz where majority of refugees from the South Ossetia are located. In Vladikavkaz he gave military awards to officers and soldiers who fought in the South Ossetia against the Georgians. He also expressed condolence to Ossetian citizens, whose relatives perished or were missing during the conflict. The head of the Russian State also promised to take all measures for restoring the destroyed economy, houses, and infrastructure in the South Ossetia. At the same time thousands of Ingush refugees who were ethnically cleansed from the North Ossetia, during the Ossetian-Ingush conflict in 1992, cannot return back to their homes in the North Ossetia. Ingush refugees are Russian citizens unlike the South Ossetians who are the citizens of Georgia.
An Ingush national Musa Khamchiev from Malgobeck was detained by Russian security forces no official charges were made public. Ingushetiya.ru news agency reports the government forces arrested an innocent person.
As many Ingush nationals have noticed since the beginning of the war between the Georgians and Ossetians the numbers of “insurgents” attacks and FSB abduction in Ingushetia decreased to zero. Ingushetiya.ru news agency also reports the same observation. As Ingushetiya.ru says some people fear that after the end of the war everything will return back to the pre-war conditions.

The official Russian news agency “Russia Today” made available the following video material which was broadcasted all around the world. The Russian news agency presented the Ingush towers and graveyards of deportees of 1865 as Ossetians. However, “Russia today” and its Ossetian hosts cannot explain where the structures appeared from, and most definitely they cannot explain why these structures are found only on Ingush territories and not for example in the South Ossetia.
Notes: In 1864-1865 Russia began mass deportations of Chechens and Ingush to the Ottoman Empire and confiscated their land. Only a fifth of the original populations were left in the Caucasus. Majority of the areas were completely emptied of Ingush population and later occupied by Cossacks and Ossetians.
A fight between Ingush and Ossetian nationals broke out after an Ossetian shot an Ingush into his leg from a pistol. There were about 13 people fighting on both sides. Three of them were later hospitalized.
