«Моя миссия донести до западных стран и, в частности, до Парламента Италии информацию о том, что положение вещей в Южной Осетии не соответствует публикациям западных СМИ и руководство республики поддерживается народом. Думаю, на основании этого западные страны смогут развивать сотрудничество с вашей республикой» (2019-06-10)

Corresponding elections

On 9 June 2019, the so-called Republic of South Ossetia, located within the internationally recognised borders of Georgia, held “parliamentary elections”. The overwhelming majority of the world’s nations does not recognise the sovereignty of the Republic of South Ossetia, while international institutions such as the OSCE ODIHR considered “elections” there as illegitimate and did not send international election observers there.
