The Embassy of South Ossetia in Abkhazia commemorated those lost in the 2008 war


The embassy of South Ossetia in Abkhazia commemorated the peacekeepers, militias, soldiers and officers of the Russian army and civilians in Tskhinval perished in August 2008. President of Abkhazia Raul Khadjimba, the head of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Abkhazia Daur Kove, the head of the government of the Republic Valery Bganba and the Russian Ambassador to Abkhazia Alexey Dvinyanin took part in the memorial event, held on Thursday at the embassy of South Ossetia in Abkhazia.

“We will always repeat that South Ossetia will always be grateful to Russia and will not forget the feat of Russian soldiers,” Oleg Botsiev, South Ossetian Ambassador to Abkhazia, addressed those gathered at the event in the embassy dedicated to the memory of victims of 2008. As for Georgia, it continues to live under the laws of the information war, which began in August 2008, without stopping before the deliberate falsification of facts about its atrocities in South Ossetia and imposing on the international community a convenient picture of a distorted reality, declaring itself a victim, exposing Russia and Georgia as parties to the conflict."

According to him, Georgia, refusing to sign an agreement on the non-use of force during the Geneva discussions and "pushing" at a session of the OSCE Parliamentary Assembly a resolution containing accusations of Russia of occupation and attempts to de facto annexation of South Ossetia and Abkhazia, demonstrates its state "ideology of chauvinism." Abkhazians and Ossetians, who have experienced all the horrors of Georgian nationalism, have been well aware of this for a long time... With such Georgia, we are not on the way," the Ambassador added.

Minister of Foreign Affairs of South Ossetia Dmitry Medoev, whom the tragic date "found in fraternal Abkhazia", ​​also thanked the President of Abkhazia, the leadership of the Republic and the people for the support and assistance, "which was rendered then" and continues to this day. “Our fraternal relations have very deep historical roots, and we must always be together: in joy and in sorrow,” Medoev noted.

The head of Abkhazia, in turn, told what the August events of 2008 became for the Republic.

"This page (the events of 2008. - Ed.) will remain a black spot in the history of Georgia. This is an attempt to commit genocide not only against the Ossetian people. We are well aware that if they had succeeded there (in South Ossetia. - Ed.), the events would have developed in our direction, and those bold decisions of the Russian leadership that were adopted in those days and later made it possible to preserve our peoples, "Khajimba said.
