It looks like Moscow has given up the idea of building a railway connection between Tskhinvali and Vladikavkaz. Since last year’s Russian attack the puppet leadership of South Ossetia has frequently suggested that a railway line will be constructed between these two towns, and on October 24 the puppet Minister of Economy Alexander Zhmailov stated that the idea of constructing this track had been around since the 1930s. However he added that it will take quite a time to start doing it. Building a railway would be a much bigger project than constructing the existing natural gas pipelines were, and it would be an important transit route to the Middle East, but Zhmailov stressed the difficulties and problems of such a construction, suggesting that his Russian paymasters are having second thoughts about the idea.
