Dear Mr. Tibilov! Dear Mr. Bibilov! Dear citizens of the Republic of South Ossetia! We heartily congratulate you on the anniversary of the recognition of South Ossetia’s independence by the Russian Federation.
South Ossetia has acquired right to be free and independent by the heavy and bloody struggle. The names of those killed in the name of the motherland will remain forever in the memory of the people.
During the years of independence South Ossetia has made great strides in rebuilding infrastructure, creating a solid foundation for further development and improvement of living standards of its citizens. Moreover, today the Republic of South Ossetia is capable of helping others.
We sincerely thank you for showing support and faith in us as a nation. I am sure that social and economic ties that are being established currently will ensure the fruitful cooperation between the two republics and the strong friendship between our peoples.
I sincerely wish you, dear Mr. Tibilov, and all the inhabitants of the Republic of South Ossetia welfare, prosperity, health and peaceful sky over the head!
Denis Pushilin, Chairman of the People’s Council of the Donetsk People’s Republic
