In honor of the Day of the State Flag of Russia, a festive event was held in the center of Tskhinval, organized by the Coordination Council of Russian Compatriots with the support of the Rossotrudnichestvo office in South Ossetia.

At the beginning of the action, in front of the Vincenzo cafe, activists were handung out ribbons and flags with the Russian tricolor.

Children were the main characters in the celebration.

The event opened with the anthem of the Russian Federation performed by the South Ossetian singer Marta Kharebova.

Sergei Skvortsov, head of the Rossotrudnichestvo office in South Ossetia, addressed the audience. He has noted that August 22 is a holiday for all generations of Russians, a tribute to the history of the great country.

“Today is a significant day - the Day of the Russian Flag. Various events are being held in all regions of the Russian Federation and abroad. The public organization "Union of Russian Citizens" has approached us, the Rossotrudnichestvo office, with a request to support the holding of today's action. We, in turn, turned to the management of the cafe "Vincenzo" to support us, too. Together, we were able to organize this holiday,” he said.

Natalya Zhuikova, Chairperson of the Union of Russian Citizens in South Ossetia, congratulated those present on the holiday, noting that this action was aimed at the patriotic education of the younger generation.

During the action, children drew greeting cards on the asphalt.

The Russian flag, the sun, hearts, flowers and other symbols associated with Russia by little artists could be seen on the asphalt.

At the end of the event, all participants of the action were encouraged with gifts.
