The sons and daughters of Ossetia had been fighting in the first rows in that terrible war, defending their Native land and smashing the enemy on land, on sea, and in midair. Ossetia will always honour their feat. The 9 of May will remain for our people the day of national pride and great military glory forever", - has noted Eduard Kokoity.

The President has also congratulated the soldiers and the officers of the contingent of the Russian troops in the Republic of South Ossetia, who in August 2008 by their courage and military valor had shown the whole world that the Russian army carefully keeps the glorious combat traditions and also keeps in mind the science of winning.
