Life Goes On (news Article)
"Life Goes On" (Russian: «Жизнь продолжается») is an article published in the 3 September 2008 weekly issue of the Russian Ministry of Defence's official newspaper, Krasnaya Zvezda. It was also posted on the newspaper's web site. The article was based on the interview of a wounded officer who had taken part in the Russian military operation in South Ossetia in August 2008. Some days afterwards, the article was pulled from the newspaper's web site, the disappearance having been commented upon by the mainstream media, including The New York Times. After the initial publication, it was picked up by blogs and internet news agencies, as the first published version contradicted the official timeline of Russian incursion into South Ossetia. However, the article was later corrected.
The article was written by Irina Zhirnova (Ирина Жирнова) and details the war experience of a Russian Army 135th motor regiment commander named Denis Sidristy (Денис Сидристый).

Famous quotes containing the word life:
“Innocence is lovely in the child, because in harmony with its nature; but our path in life is not backward but onward, and virtue can never be the offspring of mere innocence. If we are to progress in the knowledge of good, we must also progress in the knowledge of evil. Every experience of evil brings its own temptation and according to the degree in which the evil is recognized and the temptations resisted, will be the value of the character into which the individual will develop.”
