Russian occupying forces after entire occupation that inflicted killings and
destruction with no pity or mercy. The occupation had dragged its feet in solving the

In contrast to Gorbachev’s policy, however, the first presidents of Russia and Georgia, Boris Yeltsin and Eduard Shevardnadze, tried to develop good relations between their states. When the Georgian-Abkhaz war began in August 1992, Russia expressed its support for Georgia’s territorial integrity and even ...
