The action held by relatives and friends of Inal Djabiev continues in Tskhinvali, despite the frosty weather.

Policemen are monitoring the action held in the square on the round-the-clock basis.
According to Oksana Sotieva, there are almost always some oppositional MPs at the action.
Inal Djabiev's relatives have repeatedly stated that they are not going to end the action until the republic's Public Prosecutor General is dismissed.
