And we will be ready to talk with them. "

And today, remembering the terrible tragedy, we call on the younger generation to remember the sacrifices that the Ossetian people suffered on the road to freedom. "
At the end of the mourning rally, a poem was read out about the youngest victim of the Zar Tragedy, the seven-year-old Batrajz Kabisov, who on May 20, 1992, managed to jump off a car that was shot by Georgian bandit formations. The boy left his uncle bleeding, a courageous heart prompted him to run after the followed cars, but he managed to shout only: "Do not go here, they are shooting us!".
