The freedom-loving people of South Ossetia chose the path of building an independent sovereign state and defended their legitimate right to live in peace in a free Fatherland at the cost of the lives of their sons and daughters.
South Ossetia has come a glorious path of the development of the state despite on the difficulties and today is confidently looking to the future.
