South Ossetia celebrated 25 anniversary of the founding of the RSO

Heads of the Donetsk and Luhansk People's Republics arrived in Tskhinval - Alexander Zakharchenko and Igor Plotnitsky, President of Abkhazia Raul Khadzhimba, Head of North Ossetia Tamerlan Aguzarov, Minister of the Russian Federation for the North Caucasus Lev Kuznetsov.

The residents and guests of the Republic of South Ossetia were congratulated by the President of South Ossetia, Leonid Tibilov. According to Tibilov, South Ossetia continues to build its statehood and sees Russia as its main strategic partner. Leonid Tibilov awarded Lev Kuznetsov with the medal "In commemoration of the 25 anniversary of the Republic of South Ossetia", as reported by the press service of the head of the RSO, for his personal contribution to the development and strengthening of friendly relations. According to the news agency South Ossetia RESPavel Brelovsky, Deputy Director of the Department of the Ministry of the Russian Federation for the Affairs of the North Caucasus, was awarded the same award.

Congratulations on the republic's 25 anniversary were sent by Russian President Vladimir Putin:
This holiday symbolizes the resilience and heroism of the South Ossetian people, who in a difficult struggle defended the independence proclaimed a quarter of a century ago, their legitimate right to a free and peaceful life.

The heads of the DPR and LPR invited to the festivities thanked the leadership of South Ossetia for activating trade and economic ties between the republics. And, according to Leonid Tibilov, the Ministry of Economy of the Republic of South Ossetia works closely with colleagues from the people's republics of Donbass, conducts full-fledged banking cooperation, which makes it possible to overcome the sanctions imposed by the West and Ukraine regarding the LPR and DPR.

Interfax-AVN cites the statement of the head of the DPR Alexander Zakharchenko:
These are people close to us in spirit. We also consider them brothers because they, like us, won their independence in battle.

And these are the words of Igor Plotnitsky:
The people of Luhansk region will always remember that South Ossetia was one of the first to lend a helping hand in a difficult moment. With a clear conscience and kind heart, we envy you, and we hope that soon we will be able to invite you to Lugansk to celebrate the same bright date.

      Ossetians ... Ossetians are basically blue-eyed, with whiteness of their skin more likely to be scandinavians than goryanka, with regular, as if polished facial features look like “Roman matrons”, their hair is thick dark brown, physically slim with an accentuated waist, Ossetian girls are smiling and their voices are smiling them and laughter are as sonorous as the murmur of a mountain stream ...

      So, as you understand from a brief description of the appearance of the Ossetians, in Ossetia men should really have a normal orientation. wink

    As an independent, emerged from the annexation of Georgia, only 7 years old.

    Happy Brothers! drinks hi And yet, it’s very symbolic to see the heads of the unconquered Donbass on the rostrum. I want to believe that on their street, there will be the same HOLIDAY on the occasion of many years of independence from the Great Duchy. smile

    The armed forces of South Ossetia of 1240 people, according to other sources, 2 500 and 13 500 reservists, our group in the North Caucasus will certainly not greatly strengthen.
    15 tanks: 5 T-55, 10 T-72 (according to other 3 tanks (2 T-72 SIM1, 1 T-72) and 3 T-55 (on conservation)

    52 BBM: BRDM-2, BMP-1 and BTR-70 (according to other sources, 1 is the unit BRDM-2, 22 BMP-2 and 14 BTR-70 \ BTR-80)

    24 SPGs: 12 2С1 "Carnation" and 12 2С3 "Acacia" (according to other sources only 2С1 "Carnation")

    12 D-30

    6 PU BM-21 Grad (according to other sources 2 BM-21 Grad)

    4 100-mm PTO MT-12 Rapier (according to other BS-3 data)

    30 mortars n (about other data of 18 units 120 mm mortars 2Б11 (2С12) and 30 units 82-mm mortars 2Б14 "Tray")

    10 units 73 mm LNG-9 easel grenade launchers
    50 ATGM units 9K111 "Bassoon" and 9К113 "Competition"
    6 PU SAM 9K31 Arrow-1 "
    10 memory-23-2 (according to other 6 data)

    20 units of Igla MANPADS
    4 transport helicopter Mi-8
    In fact, the armed forces of South Ossetia are a reinforced motorized rifle regiment, inferior in combat capabilities (a small number of tanks, fairly outdated artillery, poor air defense) to a similar unit of the Russian army.
