MOSCOW, February 18. /TASS/. South Ossetia did not send any volunteers to fight in Ukraine, David Sanakoyev, the Foreign Minister of the young South Caucasian nation told a news conference at TASS headquarters on Wednesday.
"I don't rule out a possible presence of ethnic Ossetians (among the fighters) in Ukraine today or that they are taking part in combat operations," he said. "But as for the dispatch of volunteers there at state level, surely there's been nothing of the kind."
"No doubt, we sympathize with the people who have been victimized by political games, who die every day in spite of the efforts of Russian and European diplomats to bring peace to Donbas and to prevent new deaths there," Sanakoyev said.
