The Embassy of the United States of America in Georgia issues a statement regarding the 29th anniversary of the fall of Sokhumi.
“29 years after the fall of Sukhumi, the pain that followed the Russian-backed massacre is palpable. This is the pain that was left in the hearts of the loved ones of tens of thousands of victims, and the pain that hundreds of thousands of displaced people live with every day. We always see in their eyes that their home is so close and yet so far.
On September 27, 1993, Sukhumi fell.
Glory to the heroes!”, - reads the statement.
