TSKHINVAL, December 7 (Itar-Tass) — Consultations of the opposition with representatives of the president of the Russian Federation yielded for the first time positive results, South Ossetian ex-presidential candidate Alla Dzhioyeva said after the meeting with Sergei Vinokurov, the head of the department for interregional and cultural ties with foreign countries at the Russian president.
