Pliev wished Solovyov creative success, expressing confidence that his work would find a significant response from the South Ossetian audience.

“I hope that Ivan Nikolaevich's example will inspire South Ossetian writers and journalists to write a book about Ossetian guys taking part in the special military operation,” he has added.

“I am sure that this is not the last visit to our university by a respected author, a patriot, a real Russian person,” Tedeev said.

In turn, the author of the book, Ivan Solovyov, expressed gratitude to the leadership of South Ossetia for the invitation and hospitality.

“The book is dedicated to our heroes who today, with weapons in their hands, are defending the sovereignty of our country, defending the future of our children, performing very difficult combat work every day, risking their lives. And here we must show that the front and rear are united. Sometimes there is a front in the rear, because you need to defend the very “red lines” that I write about,”Soloviev said.

The author of the book said that the book was presented in different cities of the Russian Federation.

“The first presentation, as soon as the book was issued, took place in Donetsk, in the Museum of the Patriotic War,” he has specified. - Then we visited the hospital, sent books to the front line. Each trip, each presentation is a whole event, a whole world. And we must understand that our future, our victory lies in the unity of the rear and the front.”

Solovyov h noted that much has changed for the better in South Ossetia.

“In order to look to the future with confidence, we need to be able to defend, among other things, these “red lines”, which are our self-respect, sovereignty and security, our future and the future of our children. The Lord helps the righteous, so victory will be ours,”said Solovyov.

He also stressed that he would write a sequel to the book, which would certainly tell about the heroes from Ossetia.

Zalina Tedeeva, President of APRYAL South Ossetia, Vice-Rector for Strategic Partnership and Innovation Policy of South Ossetia State University, noted that the publication of a book about Russian military personnel participating in the special military operation is very relevant.

“Our South Ossetian society is also waiting for such books, memoirs, films, performances, because we are actively participating spiritually, morally, praying for the participants in the operation, following the events,” Tedeeva said. - This phrase "red lines" today is heard by everyone who is and feels like a patriot of their homeland, Russia, a country that is friendly to us."

The Retired General, the Interior Minister of South Ossetia in 2012-2017. Akhsar Lavoev has noted that the presentation of Solovyov's book in the Republic indicates that the author treats the country very warmly.

“Your book will be of interest to all of us. Everyone knows that our guys across the front line are actively involved in the special military operation. Unfortunately, there are already dozens of dead from South Ossetia. This suggests that this is not a foreign war for us, this is our common war,” he said.
