President of South Ossetia, Anatoly Bibilov, compared the aggression of the nationalists in Georgia and Ukraine, noting that the way of the people of Donbass is very similar to the fate of the Ossetians. He told about this in an exclusive interview with the head of the News Front news agency Konstantin Knyrik.

“We have an interethnic conflict, the purpose of which was to destroy the Ossetians as an ethnic group in South Ossetia. If we compare Donetsk or Lugansk with South Ossetia and Georgia, the path is, in principle, exactly the same, the direction is absolutely the same. There is nationalism in Georgia and nationalism in Ukraine,” noted Bibilov.

“If the Georgian and the Ossetian have no kinship relations, then the Ukrainian and the Russian have one father, one mother, in principle, this is one nation,” he added.

“From the beginning of the collapse of the Soviet Union until 2014, they have been bringing up these nationalists, inspired them that the Russians are the enemies of the Ukrainians, that they were destroying us, they were destroying the Bandera, and that means they were destroying their ancestors. And no one, of course, explained to them that these “ancestors” were destroying themselves, the population, the whole villages. This, of course, was submitted in a distorted form for these thugs who were raising and received 2014,” the President commented.

“From the moment of the coup d'etat in Ukraine, all this began to occur in the same way as it was here (in South Ossetia - Ed.) In 1989. That is, they changed the territory, but the direction remained.” The leader of South Ossetia has also noted that there is definitely a connection between what is happening in Donetsk and Lugansk People’s Republics and what was happening in South Ossetia - a single script and one director.

According to Bibilov, the difference between the events in Georgia and Ukraine is on a scale, because South Ossetia itself is small, and Donetsk and Lugansk are wider and larger. “Only those killed there (in the Donbass. - Ed.) Are about 15 thousand people, and this is a nice little town. I see the difference (between conflicts. - Ed.) Only on the scale of the tragedy,” concluded Anatoly Bibilov.
