OFFICIAL Letter of LNR Chairman of the Government I V Plotnitsky on the Anniversary of the South Ossetia War of 2008




Today, 8 August, is seven years from the day when pro-American Saakashvili junta forces treacherously attacked the South Ossetian capital of Tskhinval. Georgian artillery shot into the sleeping city and attacked Russian peacekeepers. In those days, this vile crime against humanity stirred up all the Donbass. Then, Ukrainian President Yushchenko sent military aid to the aggressors. However, it didn’t help the forces of evil… the Russian army routed the invaders and restored peace. Then, we were happy for this triumph of justice, and we grieved with the long-suffering people of South Ossetia over the war’s victims.

No one could have imagined that, just a few years later, the flames of war, fanned by the same foreign agitators, would flare up in the Ukraine, and the tragedy of Tskhinval repeated itself in Lugansk, Pervomaisk, Slavyanoserbsk, Khryashchevatoe… then, we couldn’t know that fanatic nationalist aggressors would come to our homes, just as they did in South Ossetia, to brutalise and kill civilians. Furthermore, in no way possible could we have imagined that the bloodthirsty murderer of Tskhinval would become a governor in the Ukraine.

An old proverb wisely says that you find out who your friends are when you get into a jam. We were able to withstand the aggressors and the Ossetians were able to withstand the aggressors, and both of us were able to rise up again from our knees with timely and effective assistance from fraternal Russia. The first state to recognise the LNR was the Republic of South Ossetia. Thanks to the development of cooperation with South Ossetia, products from our enterprises gained access to international markets. This summer, some of kids had a summer holiday and fun in the in the hospitable Ossetian land. Yes, thousands of kilometres and the Caucasus Mountains separate us… the brotherhood of the peoples of South Ossetia and the LNR came together in common crisis, we share our common joys and our common goals.

We’ll stand together and win!
