Now we are trying to rectify the situation, and we have succeeded, thanks to the efforts of President Leonid Tibilov and the government of South Ossetia ", - said Surkov, recalling that for the first time, the Chamber of Accounts of the Russian Federation did not reveal any violations in the target disbursement of the Russian financial aid.

Vladislav Surkov called the recognition of the independence of the Lugansk People`s Republic by South Ossetia as a bold and courageous step, the right decision.
"People are struggling there for their rights, as were struggling the people of South Ossetia. I think a significant contribution to the peaceful course of the situation has been made by South Ossetia. Solidarity is very important ", - said the Russian politician.
Referring to the situation in Ukraine in general, Surkov said that the Ukrainian authorities should provide these regions "maximum autonomy" in order not to lose the integrity of their country.
"Lugansk and Donetsk will defend their rights and a minimum of what they will achieve – it`s wide autonomy. Ukrainian authorities have to show flexibility and compromise. Otherwise Ukraine will not be saved. If they do not choose federalization the country will collapse, "- said Surkov.
