MOSCOW: South Ossetia's separatist leader on Thursday said his breakaway region will become part of Russia, which fought a war with Georgia over the territory last month, Interfax news agency reported.

"Of course we will become part of Russia. We're not intending to set up some independent Ossetia," Eduard Kokoity was quoted as saying during a meeting of a Kremlin discussion group in the southern Russian city of Sochi.

Who asks him? He's an unofficial President. Sanakoev is also the President of South Ossetia, he has the right to decide aswell. :shrug:

Europe and USA will never allow this.

Russia rejects this, as I expected.
