“The tragic days of August 2008 will forever stay in the memory of the people of Abkhazia and South Ossetia. On this day, we once again express condolences and send the words of support to everyone whose friends and relatives died in hostilities. Eternal memory to the defenders of the Homeland and all innocent victims of the Georgian military aggression.
The bravery of the Ossetian people and the decisive actions of the leadership of the Russian Federation ensured peace in South Ossetia today.
I am confident that the relations between our people will continue to grow stronger and deeper. I sincerely wish every citizen of the brotherly republic prosperity and a peaceful sky above”, - said Raul Khadzhimba.
