Numerous officials arrived at the commemoration in the village of Tsentaroi: heads of the republic's ministries and agencies, cities and districts, residents of the Kurchaloi District told the "Caucasian Knot" correspondent.
"The Tezet (commemoration) in the Edelgeriev family was attended by thousands of people: first of all, local residents – several generations of Vera Deryabina's pupils, all the republic's leaders; many people came from other places," Isa, a local resident, told the "Caucasian Knot".
