June 9, 1920 Tbilisi. Morning. Bad news from Tskhinval. It seems that it is already occupied by the Ossetian gangs. We are hastily transferring forces there and will soon teach these rascals. Ossetian nationalists are our worst and most vigorous enemies. They always take advantage of our difficulties and organize uprisings for us ... Several years ago, by their rebellion, they facilitated the seizing of Batum by the Turks. Last year they helped Denikin, and now they are joining the Bolsheviks! And we are tired of these endless revolts.

Report of the Chairman of the Economic Council of South Ossetia

On the state and tasks of the further development of industry in the region. August 18, 1922

South Ossetia has always been a country of agriculture. There was no industry. There are no factories or plants. The Menshevik pogrom in 1920 destroyed the economic life of South Ossetia to the foundation. The ruin is complete. The economic authorities of South Ossetia are faced with the task of restoring a devastated economy.
