South Ossetian capital gradually returning to normalcy

Столица Южной Осетии постепенно возвращается к мирной жизни

The capital of South Ossetia, Tskhinvali, is gradually returning to normalcy. City municipal services are making every effort to clean and restore the city's infrastructure. A few social establishments and daily services have resumed function. Refugees are returning to their own homes; nevertheless, there are few people to be seen on the streets. Many have been forced to remain outside the republic as many of their homes were completely destroyed.

According to South Ossetian Minister of Health Nugzar Gabaraev, beginning August 21st, all clinics and pharmacies will be open. "The Republican hospital is already operating at partial capacity. Task groups from the Ministry of Health will visit different regions of the republic to deliver aid to local residents," noted the minister.
