After the 2008 war between Georgia and Russia, political, territorial, and judicial stability in Georgia remains threatened. Due to the inability to apprehend the perpetrators, international justice has proven powerless for the thousands of victims of the ethnic cleansing of South Ossetian Georgians. However, on January 21, 2021, the European Court of Human Rights found Russian forces and their South Ossetian allies guilty of forcibly displacing thousands of South Ossetian Georgians. In 2022, the International Criminal Court (ICC) issued arrest warrants for three former pro-Russian officials from South Ossetia, accused of war crimes. These arrest warrants were timely given the widespread invasion in Ukraine by the ICC, serving as a signal to the world that the court is not inactive in the face of Russia's violations of international law.
