Representatives of the leadership of South Ossetia, led by President Anatoly Bibilov, representatives of law enforcement agencies, ministries and departments, the public of the Republic laid flowers at the memorial at the entrance to Tskhinval, near the Zguder Mountain, where on November 23, 1989, a large column of Georgian neo-Nazis was stopped.

The march to Tskhinval on the pretext of holding a “peaceful rally” was organized by representatives of all parties and informal associations of Georgia of that period, and supported by the official authorities of Georgia. The criminals who were released from the prisons of Georgia under an amnesty and joined the gangs under all the Nazi associations of Georgia tried to break into the peaceful city. The true goals of the “peace campaign” became apparent a bit later, when, having failed, the neo-Nazis blocked the city and terrorized civilians on the roads. Then the first wounded residents of South Ossetia appeared. November 23, 1989 was the date of the beginning of the struggle for freedom. In 2016, the date was included in the calendar of public holidays and has since been celebrated as the Day of Courage and National Unity.
