6,000 take part in war games in Abkhazia

Military games have been held in the Georgian breakaway republic of Abkhazia, with around 6,000 personnel involved.

The battlefield lies in the Caucasus Mountains, several kilometres from the Kodori Gorge.

The “enemy” forces were brought up to the Abkhazian border. The strategic route between the East and West of the breakaway republic was under threat.

The first day of the war games ended with success. All targets were hit and the enemy was defeated. As the second day-scenario unfolds, the enemy tries to land from the sea.

“We are satisfied. People who once lived through a war, know how important it is to mobilise quickly and to be disciplined,” said Sergey Bagapsh, Abkhazian President.
