South Ossetian voluntary group activist has appealed to the head of North Ossetia to assess the activities of the former member of the so-called "Alternative government"

Chairman of the South Ossetian public organization of the families of the dead and missing as a result of the Georgian aggression «Memorial» Alena Gagloeva has appealed to the head of North Ossetia Taimuraz Mamsurov in connection with the public statements of a former member of the so-called "Alternative government" Vladimir Sanakoev, established in 2006 by the Georgian special services and functioning in the Georgian-controlled (up to 2008) territory of South Ossetia.
In particular, the South Ossetian voluntary group activist has focused on the publication of Sanakoev on the website «Caucasian policy» October 22, 2013, which refers to the creation of the public organization "Peace Express" in North Ossetia- Alania.
"I appeal to you to stop such political projects, which, of course, are destabilizing , even extremist, and stop in time such statements and their possible harmful consequences," - the statement reads.
As a result of the Georgian aggression, continues Gagloeva, were killed many civilians and defenders of South Ossetia, the best representatives of the Ossetian people.
"Among the killed are my father and mother. We cannot forget about the Russian peacekeepers, who have given their lives for the achievement of peace in South Ossetia. People of South Ossetia are particularly upset about such statements and actions that offend the memory of those who died for our country. It is hard to imagine that in South Ossetia could have lived a man, who by his actions and statements had offended the memory of our common tragedy in Beslan, when were killed innocent children. No any citizen would wait a minute to stop such offender.
Esteemed Taymuraz Dzambekovich ! I ask you to give a proper assessment to the activities of Vladimir Sanakoev in the Republic of North Ossetia -Alania, "- the statement says.
Commenting on the interview of Sanakoev, the Chairman of "Memorial" has noted that
his so-called "political activity" was always directly linked to the presence of an "employer."
"The whole world community is aware of that peace reigns in South Ossetia and Abkhazia, but a traitor Sanakoev doesn`t want to believe in it. Apparently, all these five years, he was in a coma and could not realize how much had changed a political scene,"- said Gagloeva, recalling that the independence of South Ossetia and Abkhazia has been recognized internationally.
"In general, one should not take seriously the statements by Sanakoev. This is the nonsense of a mentally ill person. But we cannot ignore that the painful illness and fantasies can be used by the interested groups of people with certain political ideas, inspired and ordered by the West to undermine peace and prosperity in our country. Of course, the basic idea of Sanakoev is a desire to get benefit, inflicting harm in the ordered territorial point, whether it is North or South Ossetia. Such elements as Sanakoev cause irritation in the society," - is convinced Gagloeva .

The main goal of Georgia is to discredit the Russian Federation and the national liberation struggle of South Ossetia - Madina Plieva

Public statements of the former member of the so -called "alternative government" of Georgia Vladimir Sanakoev on the website "Caucasian policy" caused indignation of the people of South Ossetia, who had experienced the betrayal of Sanakoev. Sanakoev to this day has not stopped his anti-Ossetian and anti-Russian activities, but now in North Ossetia.
The appeal of the Chairperson of the Fund to support the wounded, disabled in the course of combat activities in the territory of the Republic of South Ossetia Madina Plieva to the head of North Ossetia Taimuraz Mamsurov, in particular, says:
"We – the invalids - members of the South Ossetian Foundation to support the wounded during combat operations in the territory of the Republic of South Ossetia in 1989-2008, appreciate your productive work, your professionalism and incorruptible patriotism.
You are an inspiring example for us, as a real Ossetian, a wise leader and a prominent political figure. We know that you cherish the ideals of unity of the Ossetian people, happiness and well-being of the Great Russia, and our beloved Motherland - Ossetia.
As you know, our Motherland is experiencing difficult times. Georgian fascists do not leave attempts to subjugate South Ossetia. Unfortunately, in doing so, they use the help of some citizens who are formally Ossetians, have Russian citizenship, but having nothing Ossetian or Russian at heart.
Georgian officials, politicians, extremely hostile to South Ossetia and Russia, do not hide the fact that at the present stage, their main purpose is to discredit Russia and the national liberation struggle of the people of South Ossetia. One of those who actively participated in these actions in the second half of the 2000s is a certain Vladimir Sanakoev. To our surprise, after the shameful failure of the attempts by Georgia to seize the territory of South Ossetia, killing or expelling its people, he settled in North Ossetia.
Sanakoev is trying again to come onto the political scene, giving an interview, in which he expresses the intention to return to Georgia and to resume anti-Ossetian and anti-Russian activities.
In fact, he publicly justifies the policy of state terrorism of Georgia against South Ossetia. His appeals not to accept "Russia's recognition of South Ossetia" should not be perceived calmly.
We express confidence, Mr. Mamsurov, that based on your wisdom, you will make the right decision, following the supreme long-term interests of the Ossetian people, considerations dictated by concern for peace among nations, opposition to any kind of extremism and anti-state activities , no matter where they occur."
It should be reminded that Vladimir Sanakoev is a traitor of the Ossetian people, who took the side of the Saakashvili regime and received from his hands a Georgian passport, now trying to establish in North Ossetia a public organization "Peace –Express."

The results of the presidential elections in Georgia – the new name, the old anti-Russian course

Presidential elections in Georgia have not brought sensations. The new head of state, as predicted almost all, has become the candidate of the ruling coalition "Georgian Dream", uninviting and uncharismatic George Margvelashvili. There was not a second round, his nearest rivals- the candidate of the former ruling party "United National Movement" David Bakradze and former Speaker of the Parliament Nino Burjanadze, together scored less than a third of votes.
But this is not so important. Since these elections, the presidential post in Georgia will be more symbolic than practical. In accordance with the amendments to the Constitution, adopted three years ago, the president's powers are greatly reduced, redistributed between the parliament and the government (controlled by the same "Georgian Dream "). Saakashvili`s era has become irrevocably a thing of the past.
The elections were not an arena for the struggle of ideologies. The top three candidates for the presidency demonstrated touching unanimity on the main directions of foreign policy. President-elect Margvelashvili, as well as Bakradze and Burjanadze, support Georgia's accession to NATO and the EU, rejecting the possibility of returning the country in the CIS ("Georgia is clearly moving in the direction of Europe ") and dreaming of "the restoration of the territorial integrity of Georgia," that means, the return of the independent states South Ossetia and Abkhazia that is, of course, impossible.
There is no doubt that the Georgian course "from Russia" and Euro-Atlantic integration will not change. It is also absurd to expect improvement of Russian-Georgian, Georgian- Ossetian and Georgian- Abkhazian relations, the evidence of which is a number of actions against the installation of barbed wire along the Georgian -South Ossetian border, collecting signatures for a petition against Georgia's participation in the Olympic Winter Games in Sochi ( since the beginning of October has already been collected 28,000 ), burning Russian flags and other such tricks, demonstrating the true approach of Tbilisi to establish inter-state relations.
A striking finishing touch is the reaction of the Georgian leadership to the participation of the Russian pilot Ivan Nechayev, who among other warriors repelled the Georgian aggression in August 2008, in the Olympic torch relay. "The government, which intends to improve relations with the neighboring country, should not behave so provocatively," - commented on the fact the offended government of Georgia. The problem for Tbilisi, as well as in recent years, is not in unleashing the war against South Ossetia, but only in the response of Russia to this inhumane action.
And «to establish relations», apparently, is fundamentally important not for Georgia, which has damaged them itself, but just for Russia.
And this is despite the fact that the Russian market, contrary to the interests of the consumer and the foreign policy objectives of the Russian Federation, has opened for the Georgian wine and mineral water "Borjomi " (which, frankly speaking, loses Russian mineral water both in quality and price ). What other unilateral concessions are required from the Russian side? ... But in Tbilisi are not ready to accept the reality. Georgian political circles still do not even realize such an obvious thing that the train of the "confederate Georgia" is off, and the order of the day is not the "return" of South Ossetia and Abkhazia, which will never happen, but the preservation of the territorial unity that yet remained. Not accidentally Margvelashvili, Bakradze and Burjanadze, as previously Saakashvili with Ivanishvili, during the pre-election campaign in various ways were singing an old song about «finding a common language with Abkhazians and Ossetians» and the construction of new Georgia," which will be interesting for both Abkhazians and Ossetians."
In the current circumstances, the personal composition of the Georgian leadership is not so important - it is still unable to cope with the challenges of the time. In Georgia in the foreseeable future there will be neither pro-Russian, nor pro-Georgian politicians, realizing the depth of the internal and external risks facing the state. For qualitative improvement of the Russian-Georgian relations it is absurd the claims against Russia, but the repentance of the Georgian leadership (and, more importantly, of the society) for the events of 2008 (or rather, for what was happening at least since 1989). But Georgia is proud of its "heroes." The country obviously needs external governance, and it is necessary to carry out the old methods - by a Russian governor-general from the Vorontsov Palace, situated on Rustaveli Avenue in Tbilisi.

"I`ll be checking on the spot how the work is progressing, including the law enforcement agencies.
