The name of Hugo Chavez, a true patriot and a worthy son of the Venezuelan people, who devoted his life to serving his country, is associated with a whole era in the history of the Venezuelan state, the era of the struggle for freedom and a worthy future for its people.

The Co-Chairs of the GID on Security and Stability in Transcaucasia have notified the South Ossetian party about their decision to postpone the coming 57th round of the Discussion that had been scheduled for February until April. Against the existing practice, the decision was undertaken by the Co-Chairs unilaterally, without consultations with the participants.

August 26 is the day of recognition of the state independence of the Republic of South Ossetia by the Russian Federation. The epochal event in the recent history of the Republic, which took place fourteen years ago, was the logical result of the forced longstanding struggle of the people of South Ossetia against permanent aggression by Georgia, victims of which were thousands of defenders and civilians of South Ossetia, while more than a hundred thousand Ossetians became refugees.


South Ossetia welcomes and expresses full solidarity with the decision of the President of the Russian Federation V. V. Putin on the recognition of state sovereignty and independence of the Donetsk People’s Republic and the Lugansk People’s Republic. 

January 19 marks the thirtieth anniversary of the first referendum on the independence of the Republic of South Ossetia. Thirty years ago, the people of South Ossetia took a fateful political step towards the formation of their statehood. The holding of the referendum became a great holiday for the people of South Ossetia.
