Kokoyty attacks thieves2008-12-30 17:16
The state address of the President of South Ossetia Edward Kokoyty was made public on December 26. Over a half of the text is devoted to the problems of restoration of the republic and distribution of humanitarian aid.

Those who would like to make hay on miseries of South Ossetians and act by "grabbing" must keep away from our Republic. If a contractor is a thief that is dishonestly taking advantage of the difficult situation we have after August, or trying to get a lump of Russia's financial aid - then we don't need him here. We will not allow wasting funds appropriated by Russia. This is my personal responsibility before Russian leaders".
Following the acknowledgment of abuse of humanitarian aid Kokoyty reported on the commission he had set before the Prosecutor General, the Committee on National Security and the Committee on State Control and Economic security of the Republic to provide for thorough control of all violations in distribution of the humanitarian aid. "We'll get back to this issue", - he said. - and those who are to blame will get their due".
It is possible this address will put an end to any misaddressed rumors and accusations that the story around Russia's budget funds appropriated for restoration of South Ossetia provoked.

This put everyone who hoped to make hay on the South Ossetian tragedy out of temper.
The reply appeared in "Kommersant" the following day. Ex head of the republic's Security Council Analoly Barankevich stated touching upon restoration of the republic issue:
