The armed forces of South Ossetia are celebrating 28 years since the day of formation. The Ministry of Defense was created by the resolution of the Supreme Council of the RSO dated November 17, 1992. In January-February 1993, a staffing structure was approved, which began to be staffed.

Officially, the Ministry was formed on February 22, 1993, but it was decided to celebrate the holiday a day later, combining it with the traditional holiday in honor of the defenders of the Fatherland.
