On the occasion of the Day of Bravery and National Union


Commemorative events, dedicated to the Day of Bravery and National Union, are held in the Republic of South Ossetia on November 23. This great day went down in history of South Ossetia as a symbol of stout-heartedness and unity of the nation in its struggle against the Georgian aggression.

On November 23, 1989 under the pretext of a peaceful demonstration, the Georgian nationalists, headed by Zviad Gamsakhurdia, organized a several thousand strong march towards Tskhinval.

Having spontaneously formed a small group, unarmed South Ossetian young men blocked the road entering the town and stopped the column of numerous busses and cars, heading from Georgia. After a two-day long standoff, the uninvited guests, who didn’t manage to break the resistance of the defenders of the town, were forced to leave their positions and go back.
