The new president of South Ossetia will cancel the decree of his predecessor on the referendum

In South Ossetia, there was a "confusion" with the wording of the referendum on the unification of the republic with Russia. The new government in the person of the newly elected president Alan Gagloev intends to cancel the decree of the predecessor as "not corresponding" to reality and the law. This issue, initiated by ex-president Anatoly Bibilov during his election campaign, was raised at a meeting of the incumbent head of state with deputies of the South Ossetian parliament.

The new head of state believes that it is first necessary to change the contradictory wording, hold consultations with Moscow, and then only make some decisions. Gagloev is actually directly hinting that the decree of the former rival in the election campaign was populist and hasty.

This referendum was first announced in a debate, and the wording then and now is very different. As a result, we are not talking about “joining as a subject of the Federation” within the Russian Federation, but about unification. This is completely incorrect

President Gagloev said.

The deputies, before whom the new head of state spoke, agreed with his position and that it was necessary to significantly correct the wording of the decree. However, neither the president nor the deputies mentioned, even purely technically, the adoption of another document to replace the "wrong" one.

Moreover, opinions were voiced that it is generally not worth holding another referendum on a long-resolved issue, since the people of South Ossetia already expressed their opinion about reunification with Russia thirty years ago.

As a result, the question of the referendum itself, as a private one for a more global cause of expressing the will of the people of the republic to join Russia, is mired in debate and debate. One thing is clear that the decree of the previous president will definitely be canceled, the ground for this has been prepared. But it is not clear whether a decision will be made to hold a plebiscite with "corrected" wording.

Gagloev's vague statements look very doubtful, and he himself understands this.

I foresee that they will attribute to me that I am going against the will and desires of my own people, but is this really so?

- said the president, without dispelling doubts.

However, Moscow has already disowned both the referendum and the very idea of ​​even joining, even uniting with South Ossetia. On this occasion, the press secretary of the head of state Dmitry Peskov spoke clearly. He said that Russia does not conduct any activity in this direction.

    As a result, we are not talking about “joining as a subject of the federation” as part of the Russian Federation

    on the one hand, it is clear that one does not want to lose power and influence. on the other hand, there is North Ossetia as part of the Russian Federation, and the South should be attached to it. Sands expresses his attitude or again "carries a blizzard", as Putin once noted in a similar situation)

    there is no need to invent anything. I think that the Kremlin said that there is no need to tease Georgia yet, while this same Georgia takes a neutral position in the current situation. Until: either the Russian Federation defeats Ukraine or some kind of adequate peace is concluded, no one in the Caucasus will attach anything. The statements of the last chapter were nonsense. It was clear to any adequate person. And not even stupidity, but a provocation that could also create problems in the Caucasus ..

    While Yu.O. did not enter (or did not join) Russia, there is a territorial incident in Georgia that does not allow it to formally join NATO. With territorial disputes they do not take it there. Solving the issue with entry (attachment) removes the entry problem. The question is, what will Russia have by annexing this region and getting a new approach of the enemy? This action can be done at any more convenient second.
