South Ossetia is celebrating the Peacemaker’s Day

Today, on July, 14, South Ossetia is celebrating one of the most significant dates of the modern history - entering the mixed forces on supporting peace into the zone of the Georgian-Ossetian conflict. Today is 19 years from the beginning of the peace-making operation with a unique format (except the Russian contingent, the mixed forces on supporting peace also included the Ossetian and the Georgian battalions). The peacemakers entered into the conflict zone on July, 14, 1992. By this moment thousands civilians have become the victims of three-year aggression of Georgia against South Ossetia, 117 Ossetian villages have been burnt, more than 100 thousand Ossetians have been expelled from their houses. Tskhinval found itself in a siege, the defenders of the town were repulsing the daily attacks of the Georgian army, and the fights became more and more hardened and bloody.
