Dzhioeva: Putin is a emblematic figure for South Ossetia
South Ossetian leader of opposition Alla Dzhioeva believes that "Popular Front" in support of Vladimir Putin, created in the republic on her initiative, will gather representatives of different political forces.
"It's not a reverence. I appealed to the men who stood on opposite sides, seeing that it can unite people", she said in an interview to "Echo of the Caucasus".
According to Dzhioeva, the figure of Vladimir Putin will serve a consolidating factor for the South Ossetian society. "I did it also in order to show that our people are not easily controlled, and those who are willing to stand in full growth, they see the strategic goals, and these strategic goals will undoubtedly be common with Russia. In this sense, Putin, as a candidate for president of Russia, seems to us an emblematic figure", she added.
Recall, the former presidential candidate of South Ossetia Alla Dzhioeva announced that she intended to create "Popular Front" in support of the candidacy of Vladimir Putin as Russia's president in the upcoming elections in Russia in 2012.
"This movement will include all the 16 000 citizens of South Ossetia who voted for my candidacy in the presidential elections in South Ossetia on November 27. This is the best proof of our Russian orientation and the fact that we are thankful to Vladimir Putin and Dmitry Medvedev for the support", she added.
