10908.jpegSO President's Human Rights Commissioner David Sanakoyev delivered a speech at the European Russian Forum in Brussels, South-Ossetian media reports.


Sanakoyev has stated that one cannot trust the Georgian leader's promises of non-aggression he gave in Europe, for that was the way he deceived Ossetians in August 2008.

"People of South Ossetia remember very well M.Saakashvili's promises not to attack the republic on the night of August 8, 2008 followed by a night spent under the Grad valley fire", - said the human rights commissioner.

Also, Sanakoyev stressed the difficulties faced by the people of South Ossetia when getting visas to European Union.

"For the citizens of RSO, the issue of the visa regime between RF and EU is also very important, for the majority of the SO citizens are also the citizens of RF. It is very difficult and even impossible sometimes for the SO citizens to obtain visas, for they are also the citizens of RF and then there comes the question whether the movement of the SO citizens is blocked deliberately, using the visa regime as a mechanism of political and economic pressure", - South-Ossetian representative says.

"South Ossetia is often visited by representatives of international institutions; they meet with the government officials, representatives of non-government organizations and communicate with common people. Despite that, reviews and media reports are often distorted. That is why, in addition to the rest of the reasons, citizens of SO should have an opportunity to visit EU countries to get the position of South Ossetia in this or that field across to the international community representatives", - David Sanakoyev stated at the forum in Brussels.
