President Zourabichvili celebrates Tijrobi with Locals at Gremiskhevi, near Occupation Line

President Salome Zourabichvili noted that the separation of the Georgian and Ossetian populations that had lived together for centuries is a serious crime.
 
“I arrived at the village Gremiskhevi. The day after Pentecost, Tijrobi Day is celebrated here, which had unified Georgian and Ossetian Christians for centuries.
 
“People used to come here and pray but today, the population of the village cannot come to the shrine because of the occupation line, an artificial separation of the people who have been living together for centuries, which is a serious crime!
 
“Nobody has the right to break the old tradition of living together with one another’s love. This is why I came here and I believe that this place requires attention. We should come here more frequently and show this way that this line does not exist, that this line is artificial.
 
“The road leading here is missing twelve kilometers of pavement. There should be a better way to come here and this village should not be isolated.
 
“To come and go here should be simplified. This village should not become empty. It needs care and attention from us.
 
“The road and our attention are signs that the state cares for everybody, that tomorrow, in the nearest future, we can all manage to come up here and that our society shouldn’t be divided,“ said the President in Gremiskhevi.
