Sukhumi, September 30 - Giorgio Comai

September 30 in Abkhazia is met as "Independence day". On that day, in 1993, the whole territory of Abkhazia (with the exception of the Kodori gorge) got under the control of Abkhazian forces. In Georgia instead, September 27 of the same year is remembered with sorrow, as the day when Sukhumi fell. In those weeks, almost all of the ethnic Georgian population of the region was forced to leave their homes.
