Abkhazia Attempts to Invent Itself

By Alexander Smoltczyk

A few weeks earlier, a bazooka was fired at the Abkhazian leader's official car. He had probably stepped on someone's toes, says Ankvab. "It was the fourth attack, but I'm still alive. And Abkhazia is still alive, right?"

Ankvab is the prime minister of a country where the cities ...

When, as the first reactions came in, the moderator of the site asked me if I wanted the more personal remarks removed, I replied that it was best if everything was published exactly as submitted in order that unbiased readers might see for themselves the sort of reaction (including attempts to discredit the author) that any questioning at all of the standard Georgian position always evokes and thus reach their own conclusions about (i) ...
