On the evening of 7 August 2008 Georgia launched a ground and air based military attack against South Ossetia's capital Tskhinvali. Russia responded by sending reinforcements into South Ossetia and launching bombing raids further into Georgia. One day later Russian and Abkhazian forces opened a second front by attacking the Kodori Gorge, held by Georgia, and invaded western parts of Georgia's interior. Russian naval forces blocked Georgia's coast. Almost all Georgian naval units were set on fire or sunk by Russian forces at Poti naval pier on 13 August.
