"Russia can place them on the [international] wanted list, but only if the correct materials and documents are submitted as evidence," Timur Lakhonin said.
Georgia launched a major offensive on the South Ossetian capital, Tskhinvali, on the night of August 7, killing hundreds of civilians and a number of Russian peacekeepers. Russia responded with a military operation to expel Georgian troops from the separatist region.
The Interpol chief added that more than 150 inmates had escaped one of South Ossetia's prisons during the fighting.
"Despite the fact that there is an international procedure of mutual notification on such incidents, we became aware of this fact only from media reports," he said, adding that Georgia has so far failed to provide Russia with any information on the incident, even upon receiving the official request.
