Koba is back: Stalin statue to be erected in South Ossetia

A three-meter monument, dedicated to the legendary Soviet leader Joseph Stalin, will be erected in the village of Tsorbisi, in South Ossetia. The initiator of the project is Dzambolat Tedeev, head coach of the Russian national freestyle wrestling team.

The statue, made by Ossetian sculptor Ibragim Khayev, will be placed in Tsorbisi's Stalin Square, the construction of which had also been financed by Tedeev.

Although Stalin, whose actual name was Joseph Vissarionovich Dzhugashvili, was an ethnic Georgian born in Gori, many people in North and South Ossetia regard him an "ethnic Ossetian".

Hands Off the Communists of Georgia – On the persecution of Temur Pipia

Temur Pipia, Chairman of the CC of the Unified Communist Party of Georgia, was arrested in the Georgian borders on 28-29 March, upon his arrival from Russia. 

The reason for his detention was that among his personal belongings there were commemorative medals donated by the Communist Party of the Russian Federation (CPRF) for the 75th anniversary of the Great Anti-fascist People’s Victory.

The persecution is based on Georgia’s despicable anti-communist legislation which prohibits communist symbols, equating them with the ones of the nazis!
