Today, the Republic of South Ossetia is developing rapidly, achieving new successes every day.

“Dear friends, let me congratulate you on behalf of the citizens of the Donetsk People’s Republic. This is really a vast holiday and, of course, if you look at all these years, starting in 1990, South Ossetia has experienced a lot: war, devastation, deprivation and, worst of all, the loss of loved ones and relatives. Donbass, alas, knows what it means to lose beloved ones all too well.
There is one more thing we have in common (an important thing!) is the “Road of Life” with Russia. No doubt, Russia has done and continues to do a lot for the people of South Ossetia. In the same way, the Donetsk People’s Republic receives tremendous political and humanitarian support. It gives strength to move and keep up.
I am convinced that the future of South Ossetia is connected with development and prosperity for all citizens. The people of South Ossetia deserve this. Let me once again sincerely congratulate you on Republic Day and wish you to achieve what the people of Ossetia strive for!” Denis Pushilin said.
