Although Abkhazia seceded from Georgia and declared independence almost a quarter of a century ago, only a handful of countries recognise its existence, among them its powerful neighbour Russia. Our reporters returned to this small Caucasus republic, once nicknamed the "Pearl of the Black Sea", seeking international recognition. At the foot of the Caucasus Mountains, Abkhazia is a small territory of 240,000 inhabitants wedged between Georgia and Russia. At the time of the Soviet Union, it was an autonomous republic within the Georgian Soviet Socialist Republic. After the fall of the Soviet blo...

The history of the modern republic of Abkhazia begins with the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991 and the Georgian-Abkhaz war of 1992-1993, as a result of which Abkhazia proclaimed its independence from Georgia. One of the combat areas was Tkwarchal (Tkvarcheli) - an industrial city in the east of Abkhazia.
