Russian Cakes

I can't get through to the official website of the Georgian Parliament or the portal for the government of Georgia, as the conflict between the NATO-leaning Georgia and the nuclear-armed Russia heats up.

The website of the Russian President describes the country's military offensive as "Humanitarian Assistance to the Population of South Ossetia," which given these images seems an improbable claim. As this apologetic message explains, it is difficult for English speakers to see much from their materials about the other branches of the government.

So, in the absence of information from official government websites about this escalating border conflict, may I recommend these popular, much-e-mailed photos of Russian cakes?
