VLADIKAVKAZ, April 17./ITAR-TASS/. High school students in South Ossetia’s capital Vladikavkaz have written an open letter to US President Barack Obama urging him to “oppose fascism in Ukraine,” the culture minister of this Russian republic in the North Caucasus region told ITAR-TASS on Thursday.
Minister Fatima Khabalova said that 35 students decided to write a letter to Obama after visiting the ‘museum of victims of NATO and US crimes,’ which opened in Vladikavkaz on Thursday. The exposition is divided into themes on regions where the US and NATO carried out their military operations - from Vietnam to the former Yugoslavia.
“Ukraine is the land where hundreds of Ossetian privates and officers, our grandfathers and great-grandfathers, lost their lives fighting against Nazism and fascism during WWII,” the letter reads. “The president of a country like the United States cannot support the fascist regime of the modern-day Ukraine."
