In his speech, Gassiev especially noted Russia's invaluable support in the fate of the people of the Republic, saying that 28 years ago, in September 1990, on the days of armed confrontation, the Republic of South Ossetia was proclaimed, and this event was a turning point in our modern history, the state took a start into a new life.
"With the beginning of the collapse of the Soviet Union, in Georgia, at the end of the 1980s under the guise of a national awakening, began to sound more and more ideas of the national superiority of the titular Georgian nation over the other nations - Ossetians, Abkhazians, Russians and others - who for many years lived in a single Soviet state. The slogan "Georgia - for Georgians" was elevated to the rank of the official Georgian outlook, "Gassiev continued.
"Under these conditions, the people of South Ossetia began to seek for political forms of self-defense to ensure national security. Today, from the height of the past years, we can state that the formation of the Republic was a fateful and the only true step of our people, "he summed up.
"All these years, despite the difficulties, we have created a solid foundation for the well-being of future generations and in the conditions of incessant aggression significantly strengthened ourr statehood. This was done at the cost of the lives and health of thousands of our citizens, in the face of economic devastation and mass emigration of tens of thousands of our fellow citizens, "Zavur Gassiev concluded.
