Each meeting with the President of the Russian Federation, Vladimir Putin, is of special importance not only in my life as a citizen of the Republic, the president, but also in the life of our people," said the head of state Leonid Tibilov during a press conference in the State Committee for Information and Press of South Ossetia.
"Meetings with Vladimir Putin are of special importance to me," said Tibilov. "But there are significant meetings, and one of them is the official visit of the President of the Republic of South Ossetia to the Russian Federation in October 2014, where one of the most important issues was raising the standard of living of our population. During this meeting, we managed to maintain a contingent of servicemen of the Defense Ministry of South Ossetia. "
The head of state noted that prior to his visit to Moscow it had already been decided to reduce the number of servicemen of the Ministry of Defense of the Republic to 250 people.
"We did not agree with this issue," said Tibilov. "And I am grateful and I will be grateful to Vladimir Putin all my life for supporting us and saying that South Ossetia must have its own army. We have preserved our army, and today we are doing everything to ensure that the fighting ability of our army meets today's requirements. "
"Today is no longer saying that South Ossetia is some kind of black hole and so on," said Tibilov. "Today we have a very high trust and confidence of Vladimir Putin and other leaders of Russia."
