Russia not interested in NATO opinion on election
Russia does not care about NATO's opinion of the election results in South Ossetia, Russia's ambassador to NATO Dmitry Rogozin said, commenting on NATO's declaration of "non-recognition of the election results in South Ossetia".
This issue is beyond the scope of NATO, as the alliance is not a humanitarian organization and has no observers in the region or at the election, Rogozin stressed.
The second round of the presidential election in South Ossetia is to be held on the 27th of November, with two candidates: ex-Minister of Education Alla Djioyeva and the head of the local branch of the Emergency Ministry Anatoly Bibilov. Each of them received over 25% of votes in the first round.
