This is a dossier in which the events of the Georgian conflict are documented. These events are part of the news, but given the rapid developments in Georgia, they are documented in an own file. Reports from QNN war correspondents, governments around the world, and free-lance journalists will all be included.
Russian forces are reported to have seized two streets in the capitol city of Tbilisi. Heavy bombings have devastated Tbilisi International Airport and droves of people are fleeing to the west side of Georgia for emergency evacuations.
Georgia in a state of humanitarian crisis as the nation burns

KIEV- The Russian-Georgian, as recently launched by the Russian Federation, has been becoming more and more of a stalemate, and has seen violence grow as some say the Georgian controlled parts of Georgia are having a humanitarian crisis, as energy supplies and food has ran short, while in the Russian controlled parts of Georgia, as well as throughout the entire Georgian capitol, places have seen rioting and turned into anarchy.
Paradoxically, this war started over the regions of Abzhakia and South Ossetia, and those are the most peaceful regions in Georgia. Both are not only controlled by the Russian Federation, but many support the Russian Federation taking them from Georgian control, as the Georgian nation was not very popular in those two outlying regions. There has been some popular support there for Russian military presence, so those two regions, since the Russian takeover, have been relatively peaceful. While those two regions have enflamed tensions between Georgia and Russia, there was division in organizations like NATO and places like the United States Congress whether there should be NATO-led intervention in the defense of Georgia at all. However, with the death of the British Ambassador in Georgia, and the invasion of the Russian Federation of the rest of Georgia, support across NATO populations has been strongly in favor of intervention, though that support is not universal.
In much of the Russian held territory of Georgia, it has seen a state of anarchy, as civilian populations are hostile to the presence of Russian troops, and much of Eastern Georgia, outside of South Ossetia and Abzhakia, has seen residents resort to guerrilla warfare against the Russian army, which has seen casualties go up for both sides, and increasing frustration from the Russian military. In the capitol city of Tbisili itself, it has been slow progress for the Russian military, as Georgians have taken up arms and are making fighting difficult, forcing the military to fight on a street-by-street basis, and making progress for the Russian military next to nothing.
In Western Georgia, there has been air battles for control of the skies, as the Russian Air Force has increased its tactics of heavy bombings of important Georgian power plants and air fields. Because of that, the Georgian state has declared martial law, with Georgian military leaders vowing that they will 'never surrender' and that the 'Georgian nation will always remain whole and united'. The Russian Air Force has faced heavy fire from Georgian anti-aircraft weapons, as they have knocked down planes that are seemingly intent on striking Georgian power plants. In Western Georgia, food supplies have been running short, as well as energy supplies, which have stirred up anger against the Russian military.
However, some of the Georgian power plants that have been hit have seen huge effects on their areas. With the brutal winter coming in that is facing nations across the East, including Poland and the Ukraine, Georgians are getting ready to brace for the cold. While anti-aircraft weapons have successfully defended Georgian hydroelectric plants, with Georgian planes and anti-aircraft winning on home soil, a big loss has been the Inguri Power Plant, which proves electricity to nearly half of Georgia. Located on the Southern border of Abzhakia, the Russian military has taken full control of it, and have cut off energy supplies to the parts of Georgia that are not under Russian military control.
However, the situation is growing more and more precarious in the Black Sea, as NATO sea vessels arrive in Georgia, and stand off the Russian Navy, neither fighting the other. The world has watched Georgia slowly turn from stability into more anarchy, as violence rules the nation, looting in places around the country has become commonplace, and people see it as 'survival of the fittest'.
QNN will provide updates on the situation.

In a surprise turns of events, Georgian civilians on the Eastern Regions of Georgia today stole chemical weapons from a Russian Unit based in the region, the civilians then transferred the weapons to the western side where the weapons remain hidden by rebels who say they will hand it over to the UN once Russia leaves Georgia over wise it's "fair game" for the Russians. This has stoked further anger into the Russian troops in Georgia who are now requesting to leave Georgia or risk their defection.
Recent bombings had occurred in populated areas near Abzhakia, and light gunfights have erupted once more, killing 12 Russian soldiers and 24 Georgian militiamen. This could potentially damage peace talks between Tbilisi and Moscow.
