Abkhazia: Wants Its Freedom Back!

An unbelievable Black Sea country!


One of the most beautiful areas of the world is the little break away republic called Abkhazia! Attached to Georgia physically but not mentally. Abkhazia has it own freedom in mind & wishes that Georgia would go away. Keep in mind that this was a country that was forced to become part of Georgia back in the Stalin era…..
After 15 years of being under blockade Abkhazia’s holiday resorts are preparing for the return of tourists. Sea links between the breakaway republic and Russia are set to be re-opened.

There was a time when the port of Sukhumi was about to become Abkhazia’s main passenger terminal. But it never happened. In 1992 Georgian troops entered Abkhazia starting a full-blown war.

Almost all of Abkhazia’s territory stretches along the Black sea coast. Back in the 1980s there were plane and passenger lines serving the millions of tourists visiting this region. The towns of Pitsunda, Gagra and Sukhumi have been very popular vacation spots since the 19th century, when Abkhazia was part of the Russian empire. The patriarchs of the Russian Orthodox Church had their summer residence in the town of Afon.

However, Joseph Stalin merged Abkhazia with his homeland Georgia – a decision that, after the fall of the USSR, caused a violent military conflict.

Russian peacekeepers and UN observers managed to put an end to the bloodshed. But most of Abkhazia’s infrastructure, including airports and marine facilities had stopped functioning. Strangled by international sanctions, the self-proclaimed republic suffered from the blockade for more than 15 years.

Recently Russia lifted the sanctions, including economic and political ones. Georgia objected since it considers Abkhazia part of its territory, but Abkhazians hope that as well as opening sea routes to Russia, they will be able to travel to other countries by sea. Planned routes include not only ones linking Sochi in Russia to Sukhumi and Gagra, but also a link with Trabzon in Turkey.

When we traveled to Sochi this Spring we got a chance to see a little bit of Abkhazia. The only word that fits is: Beautiful!

Abkhazia just wants to go back to what they once were. I wish that Georgia would just leave it alone & let Abkhazia have peace….

Over ten years ago I met the most wonderful Russian woman in the world! What started as friends on the Internet per e-mails and text messages, became a dream come true for this American...

I moved to Russia nine years ago and have never, one time, in all those years, regretted that move to Russia. In fact, I have realized over the years that Russia is safe, incredibly fantastic and a wonderfully explicit country to live and travel in...

I have been lucky in many ways and meeting a normal Russian woman whose main goal is not to leave Russia, that was a blessing in disguise, as I was the one who had to make the hard decision to leave my country. It was a decision that I have never ever regretted and it also opened my eyes to a whole new world of ideas and thinking's...

So welcome to Windows to Russia and stay a spell, sip a cup of coffee...

Walkum Talkum

The US led "War on Terror" is an open ended vehicle by which any people on the face of the planet who do not agree with America may be targeted by covert Western forces using methods like drone strikes, social media instigated color revolutions, assassinations, death squads, 'humanitarian' bombing, sanctions and blockades. America forgets that during their much lauded 'War of Independence', THEY were the saboteurs
and terrorists...

The current activities and narratives of the USA are solely based on their egregious efforts to expand their hegemony, no matter who is 'right' and who is 'wrong'...

The Kiev regime using the word 'Terrorist' to describe 4 million of your own citizens who don't accept a government installed by a foreign power is a prime example. While the world debates semantics, thousands of men women and children die and millions are chased away from their homes and nobody cares...
