We, Ossetians, are deservedly proud of the heroism of our countrymen, who showed great miracles of courage and resourcefulness, defending their homeland in the Great Patriotic War. We are proud of the number of Heroes of the USSR and awarded with state awards for their exploits. Like a balm for the soul of each of us are the words of General Tyulenev, that "the word =the Ossetian proudly sounded on all fronts" of the war.

At one of the conferences of the South-Ossetian Research Institute Director Robert Gagloity, touching on the issues of the genocide of the Ossetian people, stated that two attempts occurred during the 20th century and the beginning of the 21st century - the phases of the genocide of the people of South Ossetia.

A hundred years have passed since the genocide unleashed by Georgia against the Ossetians in 1920. Witnesses of those terrible events are not alive, but their children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren remember well the stories of the elders, who had to experience the whole horror of the Georgian fascism, which originated in those distant years. And to be more precise - Georgian Nazism has deeper historical roots.

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.
