TSKHINVAL, November 30 (Itar-Tass) — Some 3,000 supporters of South Ossetia's former presidential candidate Alla Dzhioyeva are taking part in a peace march in Tskhinval, demanding acknowledgement of her victory in the republic's presidential election.
The peace march is a form of public disagreement with the authorities' decision, selected by Dzhioyeva's election headquarters.
The march went past the Russian Embassy in South Ossetia, and the headquarters of Anatoly Bibilov, who was Dzhioyeva's rival, and proceeded to the square in front of the government building.
The participants are chanting "Alla" and "Rastdzinad" /which is "Justice" in Ossetian/.
Police tightened security around the square.
Alla Dzhioyeva and General Anatoly Barankevich are in the first rank of the march; a crowd of people around them is guarding them.
It is snowing in Tskhinval at present.
