The head of state announced this during a meeting with a delegation of the Federation Council of the Federal Assembly of the Russian Federation, which arrived in the Republic on a working visit.

“Last year was signed a protocol on cooperation with the Crimea. This year we came to the conclusion that we will sign a full-fledged agreement between our republics on April 18 at the Yalta International Economic Forum. In addition, the Tskhinval administration addressed to the Foreign Ministry in order to work out the signing of a twinning agreement with the city of Kerch. And this document will also be signed at the forum,” the President said.

He has dded that South Ossetia will present its products at the forum, which will include wine produced in the Republic by the Crimean investors.

A representative of the legislative body of the government of the Republic of Crimea, a member of the Committee of the Federation Council on international affairs (co-chairman of the Russian part of the commission) Sergey Tsekov, for his part, has noted the taste qualities of Ossetian whiskey.

“As a moderate drinker, I tasted Ossetian whiskey, and I liked it for its quality and taste. The fact that it is produced in South Ossetia is great. We do not produce whiskey in Russia, why do we need to buy it somewhere, if we can buy it from you,” said Tsekov.

The Yalta International Economic Forum (YIEF) is an annual business event, a traditional one held in the Republic of Crimea with the support of the Presidential Executive Office of the Russian Federation. The Fifth Yalta International Economic Forum will be held in Crimea on April 17-21. More than 3 thousand participants from 100 countries have been invited to it.
