Vladimir Putin congratulated President of South Ossetia Leonid Tibilov and the republic’s people on the Independence Day national holiday.

The President said in his message that this holiday symbolises the South Ossetian people’s courage and fortitude in their stand for the right to a peaceful and safe life.

Mr Putin noted that South Ossetia is carrying out major state-building work, pursuing social and economic development, and expanding its international ties, and said that Russia will provide the republic with help and support in all areas.

The President also said he is confident that continued strengthening of bilateral relations based on solid traditions of friendship and mutual assistance is in the fundamental interests of both the Russian and South Ossetian peoples.
