The participants of the meeting noted that the Bulgarian people in the heroic struggle for freedom had overcome many difficulties and, despite everything, had built the independent state. Though those events took place over a hundred years ago, people in Bulgaria have been taking to heart those events, vividly and emotionally; in the country are actively published historical materials dedicated to the heroes of Bulgaria's liberation, including the Ossetians – the Vladikavkaz Cavalry Regiment soldiers of the Caucasian Cossack division of the Russian army and the irregular Ossetian volunteer battalion. According to the participants, such careful attention to the history of Bulgarians is taken by the Ossetians with great respect and warmth.
Robert Gagloev proposed to name the Society after Murat Sanakoev, given his great achievements in the development of the Ossetian science and in the revival of the South Ossetian -Bulgarian friendship. The proposal was unanimously accepted. It will now be called the Society of the South Ossetian-Bulgarian Friendship named after Professor Murat Sanakoev.
