About the Crisis in Abkhazia
The major trouble in Abkhazia began in September 27, 1993 when the self-proclaimed separatist government in Abkhazia, began sponsoring wholesale ethnic cleansing of all non-Apsua, almost all of whom were civilians. In Abkhazia today nearly 300,000 rely on humanitarian aid and 90 percent of villages have been looted or destroyed. Not since the Georgian genocide in Abkhazia of 1992-1994 has the world seen such a calculated campaign of slaughter, rape, starvation, and displacement.
