Memorial for Abkhazian soldiers in Scotland


Before the military operations ]started in Abkhazia in 1992,when Gerorgian military forces occupied the territory of the Republic of Abkhazia, the capital of Abkhazia-Sukhum had 4 twinned cities: Pointe-à-Pitre- the largest city of Guadeloupe, an overseas region and department of France, Kilmarnock- a large burgh in East Ayrshire, Scotland, Acharnon in Greece and Adapazari in Turkey.

Being the member of the World Federation of Twin-Cities, Sukhum took part in different activities, which were held in Bulgaria, France, United Kingdom, Spain, Morocco, and also in Post-Soviet Republics.  After the Great Patriotic war of the Abkhazian nation in the Scotland twin-city Kilmarnock was opened the fame park and the memorial was constructed for our soldiers who died for the freedom of Abkhazia. We are very appreciative to our Scottish friends. And even now in the city core of the capital Sukhum there is the Scotland Street, which tell about the desire of Republic of Abkhazia to renew friendship relations with Scotland and continue working in this important direction.
