Twenty years have passed since the fall of Sokhumi. The city’s fall on 27 September 1993 marked the end of the armed conflict in Abkhazia. More than 10 000 Georgian soldiers and civilians lost their lives during the 1992-1993 conflict, and 300 000 refugees were left homeless. The Abkhaz side has reported casualties of 3500 dead and 2000 wounded. The Prime Minister Bidzina Ivanishvili has stated that everything will be done to convince the Abkhaz people to come back into the Georgian fold, and that the Georgian government will be the first to make steps in this direction.
