Details

During the Georgian-Abkhaz war in 1993, in which the autonomous breakaway region of Abkhazia declared independence from Georgia, thousands of Georgians were forcefully expelled from Abkhazia. The remaining Georgians face discrimination and human rights violations based on their ethnic identity perpetuated by the Abkhaz government and enabled by the Russian Military present in the region. Georgia and most of the international community do not recognize Abkhazia's independence.
