There have been reports of looting and raping, which, if not being carried out by Russian soldiers, is ultimately their fault since they are in control of that area. Videos on youtube.com apparently show South Ossetian irregulars looting banks and other things.

Just like an army from 1000 years ago.
Send me the list!

Please see this press-release (there are some funds being set up in Georgia as well, but this one would probably be the closest to you);

NEW YORK, Aug. 11 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — The Board of Directors and the Board of Advisors and Officers of American Friends of Georgia, Inc. condemn in the strongest possible terms the invasion of Georgia by the Russian Federation. We urge the immediate cessation of the bombing,
strafing and shelling of innocent civilians. All issues should be submitted to the United Nations as soon as possible. The Russian actions are intolerable and totally uncivilized.

The West abandoned independent Georgia in 1921 when Stalin’s communists invaded democratic Georgia. The West must not refuse to help Georgia today.

Our office in Georgia reports huge damage and destruction and many casualties. We stand ready to assist in any possible way. Funds are desperately needed. Friends of Georgia may send contributions via our
website http://www.afgeorgia.org.

AFG is a public IRS Sec. 501[c] [3] charity established in 1994 by Americans and Georgian-Americans and is now supported by people from all over the world who have joined us to provide practical humanitarian assistance to the most vulnerable citizens of the country of Georgia.
