South Ossetia wants to Russia. How will the republic solve the problem of reunification?

60
The President of South Ossetia, Leonid Tibilov, said that in the near future a referendum would be held in the country, in which the people of the republic would have to make their choice regarding possible accession to Russia. Most likely, the republic’s leadership after the referendum will turn to the Russian Federation with a request to include the Republic of South Ossetia in the Russian Federation.


Recall that talk about the likely entry of South Ossetia into the Russian state has been going on for a long time. The fact that the head of the republic Leonid Tibilov is going to initiate a referendum on the issue of integration with Russia became known in the fall of 2015. At a meeting with Russian Presidential Aide Vladislav Surkov, Leonid Tibilov emphasized that modern political reality suggests for South Ossetia historical the choice is "to reunite with fraternal Russia and for many centuries to ensure the security and prosperity of our republic, our people." Then Tibilov said that he had discussed the possible entry of South Ossetia into Russia with the President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin. The presidents concluded that joining Russia is a purely internal political issue of South Ossetia, since South Ossetia is an independent state recognized by the Russian Federation.

South Ossetia wants to Russia. How will the republic solve the problem of reunification?


In order to become part of the Russian Federation, in South Ossetia it is necessary to make appropriate changes to the text of the Constitution of the RSO. This question will be raised in a referendum. At the same time, the leadership of South Ossetia understands that in the case of direct entry of the republic into the Russian Federation, Russia will face numerous foreign policy risks, quite likely with new sanctions from the West, deterioration of relations with Georgia, possible deterioration of relations with other post-Soviet republics. After all, the entry of the Crimea, and then South Ossetia, into the Russian state creates a dangerous precedent for “gathering lands”, since it is possible that in the future the fate of Georgia and Ukraine may befall some other post-Soviet countries. Therefore, the South Ossetian leadership sees the optimal way to create a single union body that can protect Russia from possible attacks by the West and Georgia in the case of a direct entry of the republic into the Russian Federation.

The desire of South Ossetia for self-determination and disconnection from Georgia has its roots in the ethno-political confrontation in Georgia at the end of the 1980-s. Then, at the sunset of the Soviet era of Russian history, in South Ossetia the national movement intensified, which advocated greater autonomy of the region. On November 10, November 1989, the Council of People's Deputies of the South Ossetian Autonomous Region of the Georgian SSR decided to transform it into an autonomous republic of South Ossetia. The Supreme Council of the Georgian SSR declared this decision unlawful. At the same time, the first clashes between Georgian and South Ossetian units occurred, as a result of which 27 people received gunshot wounds. After that, the national movement in South Ossetia intensified.

September 20 The Council of People’s Deputies of the South Ossetian Autonomous Region declared the South Ossetian Soviet Democratic Republic as part of the USSR. It was assumed that South Ossetia should sign the Union Treaty and become a full-fledged republic of the USSR. However, of course, the Soviet leadership headed by Mikhail Gorbachev would never have taken such a step as the recognition of South Ossetia as a Union Republic in the same rights as other “old” Union Republics. Nevertheless, the process of sovereignty continued in South Ossetia. 1990 November 28 of the year The South Ossetian Soviet Democratic Republic was renamed the South Ossetian Soviet Republic, and on December 1990, elections were held to the Supreme Soviet of the South Ossetian Soviet Republic, which, however, were boycotted by South Ossetians of Georgian nationality. 9 December 1990, the Georgian authorities decided to abolish the South Ossetian autonomy.

In January, 1991, with the entry of Georgian militias and militias into the territory of South Ossetia, began an open conflict between South Ossetia and Georgia. Armed clashes became regular and continued throughout the 1991 year. In September, the 1991 Session of the Council of People’s Deputies of South Ossetia proclaimed the Republic of South Ossetia as part of the RSFSR, and on December 21 1991, the Supreme Council of the Republic of South Ossetia adopted the Declaration of Independence of the Republic. Georgia, the political situation in which it was strongly destabilized at that time, was unable to suppress the national movement in South Ossetia and to cope with the resistance of the South Ossetian militia. January 19 1992 of the year in South Ossetia held a national referendum on two fundamental issues - do you agree that the Republic of South Ossetia is independent? Do you agree with the decision of the Supreme Council of the independent Republic of South Ossetia of September 20 on reunification with Russia on 1991? More than 98% of the residents of the republic who took part in the referendum answered in the affirmative to both questions. However, it should be borne in mind here that the referendum was not attended by residents of a republic of Georgian nationality, who in 1989 made up about a third of the total population of South Ossetia. After the outbreak of hostilities, most Georgians were forced to leave South Ossetia, and the rest boycotted the referendum or did not participate in it for other reasons.

After the referendum, Georgia made another attempt to regain control over South Ossetia by armed means. In February, 1992 began artillery shelling of the capital of the unrecognized republic of the city of Tskhinval. However, despite armed clashes, on May 29 of 1992, the Supreme Council of the Republic of South Ossetia adopted the Act on the Independence of the Republic of South Ossetia. By intervening in the conflict, the Russian Federation was able to organize a cease-fire and the creation of a body to resolve the conflict - the Joint Control Commission (JCC). The commission included representatives of Georgia, South Ossetia, Russia and, separately, North Ossetia. July 14 The South Ossetia 1992 introduced peacekeeping forces as part of three battalions - Russian, Georgian and Ossetian.



For sixteen years after the cease-fire in South Ossetia, the republic remained virtually unrecognized by the state, closely associated with the Russian Federation and in difficult, hostile relations with Georgia. The Georgian side did not even use the phrase “South Ossetia” in its everyday vocabulary, calling it exclusively the Tskhinvali region. For almost the entire period of the existence of South Ossetia, the republican authorities did not leave hope for the possibility of joining the Russian Federation. In joining Russia, the authorities of South Ossetia saw the single most reliable mechanism to ensure the security of the republic from the constant threat from Georgia. It is clear that the weakening of Georgia after the civil war could not last forever, so the South Ossetian politicians understood perfectly that as soon as Georgia recovers from the consequences of political chaos and economic disaster, she immediately repeats an attempt to establish control over South Ossetia. Considering that the Georgian authorities even denied the republic the right to such a name, it was not difficult to predict that an attempt to annex South Ossetia to Georgia would de facto mean the expulsion or destruction of the Ossetian population in the Tskhinvali region, as Georgian official sources called . In March 2006, the President of the Republic of South Ossetia, Eduard Kokoity, filed an application with the Russian Constitutional Court for accession to the Russian Federation. However, it was not satisfied. 15 August 2006, South Ossetia began issuing their own passports, in addition, residents of the republic in large numbers received Russian citizenship. Subsequently, it was the presence of a large number of Russian citizens in the territory of South Ossetia that became one of the most important arguments of the Russian Federation for the start of a military operation against Georgia.

During the reign of Mikhail Saakashvili, Georgia’s economic and military-political potential gradually increased due to cash inflows from the United States of America. Under the leadership of the United States and NATO countries, Georgia retrained and re-armed its army. It was obvious that sooner or later Tbilisi would try to take revenge both in Abkhazia and in South Ossetia. In South Ossetia, this scenario was even more expected, given the remoteness of the republic from the sea and the small number of its population. On the night of 7 on 8 in August of 2008, Georgia attempted to establish control over the territory of South Ossetia by armed means. Russia came to the aid of South Ossetia. Russian troops were brought into the territory of South Ossetia. As a result of the hostilities, the Russian army managed to throw Georgian units out of the territory of South Ossetia and pursue them on the territory of Georgia. 26 August 2008 Russia recognized the independence of South Ossetia and Abkhazia. 9 September 2008 between the states were established diplomatic relations. Before the armed conflict of August 2008, the independence of South Ossetia was recognized only by other unrecognized republics in the post-Soviet space - Nagorno-Karabakh, Abkhazia and Transnistria. The first country to officially recognize the independence of South Ossetia was the Russian Federation. Also, the independence of South Ossetia was recognized by Gagauzia, the Republika Srpska Krajina, from recognized states - Venezuela, Nicaragua, Nauru and Tuvalu. Later, after the start of the conflict in Ukraine, the independence of South Ossetia was recognized by the Donetsk and Luhansk People's Republics, in turn, the Republic of South Ossetia officially recognized the DPR and LPR, and volunteer units staffed by fighters from South Ossetia fought in Novorossia.



However, the formal state sovereignty of South Ossetia did not mean giving up the long-held dream of reunification with Russia. First, the Republic of North Ossetia-Alania is part of Russia. Thus, the Ossetians are one of the divided peoples and reunification with Russia can also become the basis for the reunification of the Ossetian people, which, according to the will of politicians, turned out to be divided after the creation of the USSR by two union republics - the RSFSR and the Georgian SSR. Secondly, South Ossetia already exists thanks to economic assistance and military-political intercession of the Russian Federation. Therefore, its entry into the Russian Federation will not fundamentally change the current situation and the balance of power. Thirdly, reunification with the Russian Federation is a guaranteed defense against a possible attack from Georgia. Georgia will not dare to attack Russia, given the absolute incompatibility of the military and economic potential of the two countries and the sad experience of the 2008 war of the year. The military potential of South Ossetia is small and, despite the dedication and heroism of the Ossetian people, in the event of an attack from such a major adversary as Georgia, the country's armed forces will not be able to defend for a long time. They are simply "suppressed" by numerical superiority and superiority in armaments. According to open sources, at present, the South Ossetia Army consists of two rifle battalions, one motorized rifle battalion, reconnaissance company, mountain special forces company, sniper company, guard company, guard of honor, engineering company, communications company, logistics company . In Tskhinvali, its own military school has been operating since 2010, in which command cadres are trained for the South Ossetian army. In addition, Cossack structures are active in the republic — the Alan Cossack army, which closely cooperates with the Russian Cossacks. But the main hope of the South Ossetian authorities even now is the Russian military base in South Ossetia. Finally, the majority of citizens of South Ossetia at the same time have Russian passports and enjoy all the rights of citizens of the Russian Federation. South Ossetian pensioners receive Russian pensions, young people receive higher and secondary vocational education in Russian educational institutions. Therefore, in 2014, the parliament of South Ossetia again raised the question of asking the Russian Federation to include the republic in its composition. In 2015, President Leonid Tibilov again spoke about the prospects for inclusion in Russia.

It is quite possible that if the bypass form proposed by the South Ossetian authorities for entering Russia through a single union body turns out to be effective, in the near future we can expect the creation of another supranational project like the Union of Russia and Belarus, only if the union of the Russian Federation and South Ossetia is created, there will be a much higher level of integration, up to and including the complete merger of state structures. At the military level, this merger, it can be said, has actually happened - the Russian and South Ossetian military interact very closely, perhaps even more closely than political leaders.

    Sanctions against the Russian Federation are not Crimea, these are statements by Madeleine Albright that Russia does not have the right to own Siberia. This is an anti-Russian policy, and there will always be a pretext for sanctions. There would be a desire. As for the type of independent republics of the former USSR, they are dissatisfied with something, so let them first stop asking Russia for money, and their citizens so wanting to live in their homeland without Russians will be removed from Russia. A pig with Russophobia is not needed in Russia!

      Personally, I, and I think the majority of citizens of the Russian Federation welcomes the idea of ​​reuniting the Ossetian people as part of Russia. But for sure, the country's leadership will have concerns about international complications in connection with this act. Although what else are afraid after the Crimea?

        The issue is debatable, South Ossetia is not the Crimea, and there can be no such unambiguous opinion of Russians as in the Crimea.
        There should be widespread public discussion and discussion on this issue.

        I think that after such insolence that we showed in Crimea, we have nothing to fear and lose. The issue of South Ossetia (as with an unrecognized republic) may be even a little more difficult. And maybe vice versa. The main thing is that everything is correct. do. To organize a referendum, invite international observers from the UN. True, "mattress" can sabotage this business and, raising a howl, secretly blackmail influential persons, once again frightening the world with the "Russian threat." Well, Georgia, of course, is high wai will raise.

        Yeah ... The Bolsheviks spotted a threat to their ideas in time. Because if this little and proud people had not been dispersed across the expanses of Siberia, and if they could have gathered in the amount of three Latgalls, they would have demanded and created first the Latgale Republic, then the state of Latgall , and then would enter the EU. They would have the strongest army in Europe, from Latgalls alone, they would protect Europe from the Kremlin hordes ... And so, everything was gone. Grandfather Latgall could not meet grandmother Latgall and their children were not born Latgalls .. And there was no one with grandfather Latgall speak latvian language. Instead of national Latgalian clothes, I had to wear felt boots and a sweatshirt. Siberia still. Instead of the best Latgalian food in the world, I had to choke on dumplings. In Siberia, dumplings are always eaten, and Latgalian food is forbidden. And to do everything in Latgalian is forbidden.
        In general, thanks to the Bolsheviks, the world has lost the greatest Latgalian nation with its distinctive great culture.
        Amen.

        Get hungry uncle. If your ancestors were somehow infringed, it is clearly not the Russian state, but the Soviet state. Well, the fact that they deported, well, not just like that. The Chechens were not deported because they were Chechens, but for the massive support of Hitler ... You know, the time was hard and it would be wrong to leave a potential traitor behind. So I'm sorry brotherly heart, but since your Latgalls were moved to Siberia, then there was a reason. Comrade Stalin approached the national question very seriously and did not take rash decisions.
        Here Ossetians for some reason did not deport. Do not know why?

          Because. that the Ossetians in the Second World War fought against the Nazis showing the "best ratings" we can say

          The Germans could not take Vladikavkaz, because instead of the killed Red Army soldiers, Ossetian teenagers took their weapons and got in the way of the Nazis

          Strong doubts that the Latgalls would sacrifice themselves while fighting against Europe for Eurasia - the name of the people is painfully European. This is clearly not Tuva and not Mongolia

          That is, we must admit that there were peoples where the percentage of loyalty to the empire was higher - and there were peoples with a lower percentage - and the empire knew that -

          as well as the Russians, there were Vlasovites — Ukrainians Bandera — Central Asia had a Turkestan legion — but there was a massive feat of the Soviet peoples, Panfilov’s and partisans, etc.

        I live in Adygea. The people are in every way more Latgalls. And the alphabet is - based on the Cyrillic alphabet. Books are published, the newspaper is in Adyghe, TV shows. There are Adyghe lessons at school. Only now the Adyghe children do not want to go to them. Parents say - we speak our native language, that’s enough, and at school the children are already very busy. My opinion is that it’s impossible !!! Children must be literate and in their own language! But if it goes like that, and the Adyghe language begins to die - will we Russians be to blame? Or our state? Now the Russian language is being actively destroyed. See if there are a lot of mistakes in the comments? We will take those for whom Russian is native. And in such a case, each person can do something at the level of his family, it does not affect politics, it is quite up to everyone. How many books are reading now? Not to mention discussing something. People will soon forget how to speak. And nationality is primarily a language! Red-imperial propaganda? Hmm ... Red and white is the tenth question. We have imperial consciousness in Russia. And those who voluntarily abandoned this Empire are enraged by their own worthlessness. And you didn’t just suffer from repressions, you didn’t only have grandfathers and Nazis fought and died, how do you personally feel about Russia? To her story?

          Well, until the 19th century, Latgalians were part of the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth, logs are not good Russian to you, and Latgalians have neither written language nor culture, but only show-offs.

          To the history of Russia, I regard it as a tragedy .. too much went to it .. The Russian people are great and beautiful .. I’m Russian myself .. only a quarter Latgall ... well, I don’t worry about the Russian language .. the Internet ..this speaks of its importance and relevance .. yes it develops .. and the creation of some rules is late from its development .. it synthesizes English very strongly .. but at all times the Russians were strong in what they could absorb in yourself other cultures .. and remain Russian .. and mistakes in comments .. don’t pay attention .. philologists talk about the birth of a new Russian language, the Internet .. when it is written so that it is clear and with emoticons ..

        Heh, I was especially pleased about the infringed Germans, apparently you do not know that the Germans had their own autonomy before the war, because the Germans are the most indigenous of the indigenous peoples of Russia, the Germans are more radical than the Germans, their autonomy still exists.

      What for? In all measure should know. The Russian Federation, in my opinion, should remain a state with the Russian majority of the population. With some Central Asian states that were formerly part of the USSR, it is possible to create a union state or confederation, but without entering them directly into the Russian Federation.

        I will support you. Do not confuse "concentration" with the growth of territories at the request of the inhabitants of these territories. GDP meant the concentration of forces and means to strengthen the political and economic component of Russia.

    Secondly, South Ossetia already exists thanks to economic assistance and military-political intercession of the Russian Federation.

    It is a fact. So it’s better to let them be ours officially. And everyone else will whine and fade. bully

      You can say you have an idea of ​​what is going on in the country ... I live in the North Caucasus, and I can say that there are no national problems with the Ossetians. And all peoples have everyday problems. And your nonsense looks very much like articles from anti-Russian liberal pseudo-patriotic sources like "Echo of Moscow" or "Free Russia"

    Regardless of whether to join South Ossetia to the North. Ossetia-this will exacerbate the political situation of our country. Even despite the fact that no more than 60 thousand people live in South Ossetia, this will put a huge burden on the budget, + another region of the North Caucasus ...

    I am sorry for the population of the republic, and legally they are, most of them are citizens of Russia - but I hope that all the same rumors.

    It is high time. It would be nice to return all the Russians to their homeland except for small nations. After all, many voluntarily sincerely want. Millions of 20 Russians remained on the edges of the empire.

    In principle, Russia spends billions of rubles every year to maintain the economy of South Ossetia, and if Ossetia now becomes part of the Federation, it will only legitimize current economic relations. Moreover, there should be no problems with passports and border control.

    It makes no sense. South Ossetia integrates with Russia much more densely (completely depends) than Belarus with a supranational body. Now, if she turned to S. Ossetia about the reunification of the people, the Federation could think of the Constitution and such precedents as changing the borders of the members of the Federation. Responsibility blur. They are states ... as part of the Federation.
