A moment of silence is a few moments of silence in memory of the victims of the Ossetian genocide by Georgia.

In South Ossetia, on the night of June 20, state flags were lowered, in the Republic - a day of mourning in memory of the victims of the Ossetian genocide, committed by Georgia.

We are talking about the genocide of 1920, the main events of which unfolded in June, starting on the 12th, when a massive attack of the Georgian national guard on Tskhinval began. Since June 17, there were widespread burning of villages, and on June 20, an indicative execution of 13 Ossetian communards was carried out. In fact, then, under the leadership of Noah Zhordania, Georgia managed to implement the Clean Field plan, which Zviad Gamsakhurdia, Eduard Shevarnadze and Mikheil Saakashvili tried unsuccessfully to repeat.

According to historical data, as a result of the genocide in 1920, 5,279 people were killed - this is 20% of the Ossetian population of South Ossetia, of which one in three is a child. Another 15 thousand Ossetians died during exile from cold, hunger and various diseases. During the genocide, 21 thousand people were killed, more than 100 Ossetian villages were burned. More than 50 thousand people became refugees, crossing the passes to the North Caucasus to Russia.
