South Ossetia

'''South Ossetia''' ( , ''Tskhinvalskiy region'') is a disputed region and partially recognised state (List of states with limited recognition) in the South Caucasus, located in the territory of the South Ossetian Autonomous Oblast within the former Georgian SSR (Georgian Soviet Socialist Republic) of the Soviet Union. USSR Atlas - in Russian, Moscow 1984

South Ossetia declared independence (declaration of independence) from Georgia (Georgia (country)) in 1990, calling itself the '''Republic of South Ossetia'''. The Georgian government responded by abolishing South Ossetia's autonomy and trying to re-establish its control over the region by force. http: unpan1.un.org intradoc groups public documents UNTC UNPAN019224.pdf The crisis escalation led to the 1991–92 South Ossetia War. The latter conflict led to the Russia–Georgia war, during which Ossetian and Russian forces gained full ''de facto'' control of the territory of the former South Ossetian Autonomous Oblast.

In the wake of the 2008 South Ossetia War, Russia, Nicaragua, Venezuela and Nauru recognised (International recognition of Abkhazia and South Ossetia) South Ossetia's independence.

South Ossetia, Transnistria, Nagorno-Karabakh (Nagorno-Karabakh Republic), and Abkhazia are post-Soviet "frozen conflict" zones.
