Russia saved people of South Ossetia from extermination
After being recognized by Russia the republic got an opportunity to build peaceful life, stated Kirill Tanayev, the Russian political scientist.
"Russia performed its historical mission, in particular - saved people of South Ossetia from extermination. And the positive result of events of 2008 was the stop of bloodshed. For the first time over recent 20 years people in South Ossetia aren't afraid somebody will come to them tomorrow, shoot at night, steal. Now there's an opportunity to build peaceful life," Tanayev said - Res.
In hi view, Russia is ready to assist South Ossetia in reconstruction of the republic, but in any case Tskhinval must count on its resources. "We have our problems: often our bureaucracy is ineffective, often it makes ineffective decisions, often it's corrupted etc. But it must not be the primary aspect. An opportunity of developing peaceful life appeared in South Ossetia. Now we must build, and, I think, this life will be built," Kirill Tanayev said.
By the present moment South Ossetia is recognized by four Un member countries: Russia, Nicaragua, Venezuela, and Nauru.
