In South Ossetia have been honored volunteers who took part in the defense of Donetsk and Luhansk

In Tskhinval has been held a solemn meeting of volunteers who took part in the defense of the Donetsk and Lugansk People's Republics. About forty young men who have returned recently from Donbass, have met with the leadership and the public in the assembly hall of the Research Institute.

The meeting was also attended by Russian political scientist, social activist Sergei Kurginyan, who all this time had kept in touch with the volunteers.
Addressing the meeting participants, one of the volunteers asked for forgiveness of the elders that they had gone to war without their approval.
"We all went to the Ukraine without telling anyone. But we never disgraced the name and honor of the Ossetian people", - he said.
President Leonid Tibilov said there was no doubt that "Ossetian guys will respond to the trouble of Donbass residents, who in the 21st century faced fascism."
"Once we learned about the first volunteers, we started to find out who they were. Ossetian Diaspora in Ukraine helped us very much. They informed us about the wounded. We are glad that you safe and sound returned to your native land. You are our heroes. We bow our heads respectfully before your courage,"- said the president.
He has noted that by going to the self-proclaimed republics the volunteers laid the foundation for the South Ossetian leadership to recognize the independence of the DPR and the LPR.
"When we received an appeal from these republics, we made a decision without any hesitation, hoping that this decision will also be supported by you,"- said Tibilov.
He has stressed that all those who took part in the defense of Donbass, proved themselves courageous and noble people.
According to the political scientist Sergey Kurginyan, recognizing the independence of the DPR and LPR, South Ossetia has made a wise act, "coming not only from mind, but also from heart."
"This recognition is of historical significance as the courage and heroism of the Ossetians, who repulsed fascism of the 21st century," - said Kurginyan during the meeting.
He has noted that he knew most of the Ossetian volunteers and believes that they went to defend the population of the self-proclaimed republics, guided by heart, by a sense of civic duty.

"We live in a very prudent time. But I know many of these guys, and I know that they went there guided only by heart and inner sense of civic duty. They were brave and it is recognized by millions of people in Donetsk and Luhansk, who, hearing the word "Ossetians," stand up and applaud. This good reputation is really valuable.
I do know that they did it as people who know what someone else’s pain is, who for 20 years had been defending their independence from the rudiments of something strongly reminiscent of fascism. They saw the flash of Nazism in Ukraine and were able to recognize this. Superior unselfishness, which they showed, deserves real admiration, as well as their military talents. They are treated as professionals, heroic people, and defenders of "Russian Spring" that is now starting there to decide the fate of the XXI century,"- said Kurginyan.
He is convinced that going to Donbass, the volunteers wanted to express their gratitude to Russia that in August 2008 came to the aid of South Ossetia.
"In 2008, my country made a decision I can be proud of. Today in the south-east of Ukraine is being decided the great matter of Russian, which called for Ossetians, and they came guided by the historic sense of honor and continuity to their ancestors, the heroic spirit of the Ossetian people - said the analyst. - It is not true that a state should not be grateful, that a state has the right to political cynicism, that the highest state wisdom excludes humanity. Tomorrow or the day after all should be aware that each hero will be appreciated and supported, that no one will let them to be desecrated, that none of them will be on the verge of the human process. And when the heroes understand it, they will become an example for children, for their nation, and everyone will realize the price of heroism. And after that the state of South Ossetia will become a heroic state, new Caucasian Sparta. And there will be no any philistine spirit in this state. And all the people, sitting here, will be building the great Ossetian future. "
During the meeting the State Councilor of the President announced that the head of state had signed the certificate giving the right to all the volunteers to relax in the South Ossetian resort "Nyfs."
Today the volunteers have laid flowers and wreaths at the Memorial to the fallen defenders of the Fatherland in the №5 school yard, after which the Defence Ministry of the Republic organized a state reception.
