Statement of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of South Ossetia

May 20 is annually celebrated in South Ossetia as the Commemoration day of victims of Georgian aggression. 25 years ago the roundabout way nearby Ossetian village Zar became a scene of the atrocity committed by armed forces of Georgia. Refugees driving in a column their way from South to North Ossetia were shot down at point-blank range from an ambush. 33 persons, mostly children, women and elderly, were killed as a result of that barbarous action; about 20 persons were badly wounded.

This time the inexplicable overreaction of Tbilisi was caused by words of congratulation on the occasion of inauguration expressed by Mr. Herbert Zalber, the Co-chair of the GID representing the EU, at the meeting with Anatoliy Bibilov, the President of the Republic of South Ossetia.
