Russia's annexation of Georgian territory first in Europe since Hitler and Stalin

...Earlier Saakashvili, commenting on Russia's actions, said that "this is the first time on the territory of Europe, after the Hitler regime and Stalin's Soviet Union, that a large state has made a unilateral attempt, with the use of force, to completely smash a neighbouring country and openly annexe its territory," the Novosti-Gruziya agency reported. "This is an act of unimaginable lawlessness and brazenry. The step that Russia has taken is completely illegal and will have no legal consequences either for Georgia or for the rest of the world," Saakashvili emphasized.
