At the Zguder cemetery in Tskhinval, at the mass grave where 12 Ossetian guys are buried, flowers were laid.

On Monday, South Ossetia is commemorating the victims of the Ered tragedy - one of the most monstrous and cruel crimes in the modern history of Ossetia.

Hundreds of citizens came to pay tribute to the memory of the victims: representatives of the leadership of the Republic, the Russian Embassy, residents, employees of the ministries, departments, and relatives of the victims.

On March 18, 1991, near the village of Ered, Tskhinval district of South Ossetia, Georgian armed forces seized a car with 25 civilians of Ossetian nationality.

The informals beat the women and children, but released them, and 12 men were taken away in an unknown direction.

For a long time the fate of the abducted was unknown. Searches by the South Ossetian law enforcement agencies and relatives of the captured citizens did not give any results.

Two years and two months later, thanks to the information received from anonymous sources, the burial place of the brutally tortured hostages was discovered.
