The international reaction to the 2008 South Ossetia war covered many nations, NGOs, and non-state actors. The conflict began in August 2008 over South Ossetia but eventually the violence spread elsewhere in Georgia as well. As of 10 August 2008 the war is having a considerable humanitarian impact and has affected the financial markets of Russia and Georgia.

In general, Georgia accused Russia of aggression and invasion through land, air, and sea, whereas Russia accused Georgia of genocide and crimes against humanity targeting Ossetians and Russian peacekeepers. Most other countries called for peace, with some insisting on respect of Georgia's territorial integrity, and others supporting Russia's intervention. The discussion among people involved in the conflict placed a lot of emphasis on who started it, while the reaction from the international community was disbelief at the level of destruction, calling for an end to unnecessary hostilities.
