A state border – is one of the attributes of the modern state. Any state supposes the border, the protection and the guard of which expresses its state sovereignty.
In the terms of the unaccomplished conflict between the Republic of South Ossetia and Georgia and the non-recognition by the last one of the sovereignty of RSO, the passing of the border between the two states is specified by the Decree-law 2 The-All-Georgian Central Executive Committee and the Council of the National Commissar of the Georgian SSR "About the foundation of the Autonomous region of South-Ossetia" from April 22 1922.
During the last 20 years South Ossetia and Georgia have been found themselves in the condition of the open armed opposition, in the result of which in August 2008, by support of the Russian Federation, Republic of South Ossetia became the recognized sovereign state.

One of the first steps of the foundation of South-Ossetian statehood, became the agreement "About friendship, cooperation and mutual aid between the Russian Federation and the Republic of South Ossetia" from September 17 2008. In April 30 2009, in Moscow it took place the ceremony of signing on the highest level of the bilateral agreement "About joint efforts in guarding of the State border of the Republic of South Ossetia". On basis of this agreement the subdivisions of the Border Management of FSS of Russia in RSO are stationed on the territory of the Republic. Since July 30 2009 after the undertaking the action on exposing and arrangement, the Border management with the subdivisions of the Border service of the Committee for State Security (CSS) of South Ossetia proceeded to joint guarding of the State border between the Republic of South Ossetia and Georgia.
In their activities on protection and guarding the border of South Ossetia the Russian frontier-guards follow the legislative acts of RSO, including the accepted in July 10 2010 Law "About the state border of the Republic of South Ossetia". This law defines the main positions of the efficient guarding of the South-Ossetian borders such as regime of the state border (defining the order of the intersection, maintain of the border of the Republic of South Ossetia, conducting the different works on the state border, commercial and other activities) and border regime (is fixed in border zone – on the area adjoining to the State border, defines the rules of entry, temporary stay, residences, moving the citizens of the Republic of South Ossetia and other persons, working actions).
The legislative acts in the border guarding sphere, adopted by the RSO, as a sovereign state, oblige all people strictly follow the order and rules of crossing the state border by persons and transport.
Having established for many years related, cultural, economic and the other relationship, certainly, leave its mark upon provision of the border safety of the Republic all along the border. Not each citizen of South Ossetia accepts the new terms of existence of the state border and the new restrictions and rules.
In these terms Russian frontier-guards jointly with the employees of the Border service of the CSS of RSO protect the interests of persons, society and the state itself on the state border and in the border space of South Ossetia.
Applying to the inhabitants of the Republic, I want to remind that safety and tranquility on the state border, welfare of each home, family, populated area depends on mutual understanding, mutual assistance between the frontier-guards and local population of the border area. In this connection I would like to recollect one the frontier wisdom - a Border is proteсted by all the people! In the border subdivisions serves the representatives of the fraternal people of the Russian Federation, which are always ready to protect your relatives from the armed and the other aggression, destructive outside forces. We hope on your understanding and interaction in resolving our general problems on guarding the borders of South Ossetia.
