On the eve of the 30th anniversary of the Zar tragedy, the Embassy of the Republic of South Ossetia in the Russian Federation sent a press release to all diplomatic missions accredited in Russia, as well as to the Georgian interest’s section at the Swiss Embassy, ​​dedicated to the criminal act of genocide against the peaceful Ossetian population, committed by the Georgian formations on May 20, 1992.

The agency "Res" was informed about this in the press service of the Embassy.

"In the history of every nation there are events that cannot be forgotten. For South Ossetia, the entire Ossetian people, the spring sunny day of May 20, 1992 was forever covered in darkness and mourning.

The tragedy that happened 30 years ago on the road near the small South Ossetian village of Zar is an unceasing pain in the heart of every Ossetian. On this day, exhausted by the endless shelling by the Georgian armed formations of the besieged Tskhinval, driven by fear for their lives and the lives of their loved ones, the peaceful Ossetian residents of the city and the nearby villages: women, children and the elderly, were looking for salvation and hope to wait out the war in a safe place. However, instead of salvation, fate prepared for them a terrible death at the hands of Georgian terrorists," the press release says.

The Embassy has reminded that on the Zar "Road of Life" a column of cars and trucks was brutally shot by non-humans in human guise and criminals, intoxicated by the ideology of the Georgian national fascism, under the slogans of which the Ossetian population was destroyed in 1920, 1989-2008. 33 civilians were killed.

"This monstrous crime of the Georgian nationalists still remains unpunished. The General Prosecutor's Office of the Republic of South Ossetia initiated a criminal case on the fact of the murder of civilians on the Zar road. The participants of mass war crimes against the people of South Ossetia have been identified, but the official authorities of Georgia, in whose territory they have found refuge, are preventing the search and detention of the perpetrators.

Unfortunately, there are more and more adherents of the criminal ideology of superiority and neo-Nazism today. South Ossetia is once again calling for consolidation in the fight against fascism, which, unfortunately, finds support in various countries, including at the state level," the Embassy said.

The diplomatic mission has noted that the world community, "which is silent, must be united and resolutely fight this criminal ideology, because impunity gives rise to new tragedies, new ruined innocent souls."
