South Ossetian President Anatoly Bibilov has declared his intent to join the Russian Federation and will take the legal steps to do so, reported Russian state news agency TASS.
“I believe that unification with Russia is our strategic goal. This is our way and an aspiration of our people. We should move forward along this path. The corresponding legal steps will be made in the near future. The Republic of South Ossetia will become part of its historical motherland – Russia,” he said.
Bibilov stressed that South Ossetia, Russia and the whole world were living through an epoch-making period.
“The Russian world today is defending the interests of its adherents, those who are opposed to Nazism, who respect universal humanitarian values and the fundamental rights and norms shared by the entire international community,” Bibilov said.
He stressed that the first act of revival of the Russian world occurred in South Ossetia in 2008, when Russia decided to recognize the republic’s independence.
“It was a historical decision that granted the people of South Ossetia the guarantees of peace and a chance to develop. However, the main historical and strategic goal of the Ossetian people – a divided people – is unification within one state – Russia. Our people has repeatedly confirmed this goal,” Bibilov said.
