Vadim Brovtsev: New staffing policy in South Ossetia is oriented at young specialists

Recently, the Chairman of the RSO Government Badim Brovtsev held a session on new staffing policy in South Ossetia. The session was attended by the executive staff of the Government. During this session, the Prime-Minister underlined that it was necessary to reorient the staffing policy to young specialists. Eleonora Bedoev, the acting Minister for Youth, Sports and Tourism commented on this decision of the new Government: “For 18 year, the young people were fighting for freedom with arms in their hands. The youth played a significant role in the struggle for recognized independence of the Republic of South Ossetia. Today, the new leadership of South Ossetia stakes on youth and I am sure that this youth will justify this trust and will build up the ruined state.

A meeting of working groups held at the South Ossetian-Georgian border

On 3 September, a preparatory meeting of the working groups within the frames of the Incident Prevention and Response Mechanism (IPRM) was held at the South Ossetian-Georgian border. As the head of the South Ossetian Delegation Merab Chigoev underlined, “official meetings were suspended upon the initiative of the South Ossetian side due to unsettled issues of the meetings’ presidency and the fate of South Ossetian citizens detained by Georgian special services”.
”These are three citizens who were abducted in October 2008 from their villages in Tskhinval and Znaur districts. No progress in these issues induced our decision to suspend our participation in official meetings. Nonetheless, with the repeated addresses from the Co-Chairmen of the Geneva discussions and the appeal of the Russian MFA, we resumed these contacts but in the format of preparation for official meetings”, said Chigoev.
