In November, 2011 people of South Ossetia elected their president. Over 5,000 votes came to Alla Dzhioyeva. However, the elections were declared invalid and new elections are scheduled for March, 2012. The easiest way to receive the majority of votes is to promise to repair the republic’s destroyed infrustructure but it looks like nobody’s really interested in that.
The city’s theater turned into a public restroom.
Happy New Year, people.
