Stalin Awarded the Territory of South Ossetia to Georgia

Summary of Disinformation

The territory of South Ossetia was awarded to Georgia by Stalin, ignoring the will of South Ossetians.


Historical revisionism. The territory of the so-called South Ossetia has never been outside Georgia’s jurisdiction. Under the Treaty of Moscow of 7 May 1920, Russia recognized Georgia’s independence. Under the treaty, the territory at stake was in Georgia’s jurisdiction. Accordingly, in 1922, Stalin could not possibly award additionally another territory to Georgia.
