The head of state thanked Sergey Manko for the work done on the territory of the Republic of South Ossetia and for his attitude towards the people of the Republic.

“You have done a lot to build ties between the Republic of South Ossetia and the Russian Federation not only as a diplomat, but also as a historian, having written a book about Ossetia and Ossetians. This is a serious work, which is highly appreciated by our historians. I also thank you for the fruitful work you have done during your working period in the Embassy of the Russian Federation in the Republic of South Ossetia,” said Anatoly Bibilov.

For his part, Sergey Manko thanked the President for the warm welcome, noting that since his arrival in Tskhinval in 2014, South Ossetia had transformed beyond recognition.

“I love the Republic of South Ossetia very much, there are wonderful people here.

“For me, as a historian, it has always been a mystery that it is difficult to unravel by the world community: how such a small nation, having stood against forces outnumbered them tenfold, managed not only to defend their freedom, but also to achieve independence.

This is a historical phenomenon that needs to be further studied, shown to others that should not to give up when fighting for your freedom. I am sure you will always have a victory ahead. I wish South Ossetia development and prosperity,” he said.
