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.

  1. Isn’t it just great that Russia liberated this country from the evil Georgian invaders so that it would be free to prosper and blossom?
    These photos make me want to move there.

  2. When you think you have it bad, look at this.

    Living in the West, you live better than 99% of the rest of the world.

    Hard living, everyone looks like they are 100 years old.
