Entry to so-called South Ossetia from Russian Federation has been suspended, de-facto foreign minister Murat Jioev told Osinform.
According to Jioev, the ban applies to those, who are not citizens of so-called South Ossetia. Jioev said the ban did not apply to Russia citizens, who were serving at the fourth military base in Tskhinvali.
‘These measures were imposed for ensuring security and the existing legislation of the Republic according to the agreement on visa-free transportation between Russia and South Ossetia’, Jioev said.
According to Jioev, they have already informed the Russian side of the above-mentioned through the so-called embassy.
Entry to so-called South Ossetia was restricted yesterday too. Turmoil started in so-called South Ossetia on 30 September, after the de-facto Central Election Commission refused to register chief coach of Russian wrestling team Jambulat Tedeev as a presidential candidate. 90 supporters of Tedeev were detained.
Presidential elections will be held in so called South Ossetia on 13 November.
