The South Ossetian conflict, which began in early August this year, not only sparked a military war between Russia and Georgia, but a propaganda battle. It even made the front-page of PR Week magazine in the UK. Both countries have hired Western PR companies to help put across their messages. link

Incidentally, Matthew will be joining us at From the Frontline as a blogger. He’ll be one of between 30-40 new bloggers starting by the end of November (fingers crossed 🙂
