On April 9, President of the Republic of Abkhazia Raul Khadzhimba congratulated the residents of Tkuarchal on the city day.
The congratulation states, in particular:
“Dear residents of Tkuarchal!
Please accept my sincere congratulations and wishes on the occasion of a wonderful holiday – the day of the hero-city of Tkuarchal!
In the documentary chronicle of our state, the bravery and courage of the noble sons and daughters of Tkuarchal occupies a worthy place. The highly moral qualities of the valiant defenders of the city were brightly manifested in the Patriotic War of the People of Abkhazia of 1992-1993. It was you, dear brothers and sisters, who withstood blockade, hunger and cold. You have experienced all the hardships of a difficult war time. In the incredibly difficult conditions of isolation from the outside world, you have managed to create a strategically important springboard for entire Abkhazia which allowed to create effective communication between the Western and Eastern fronts. Your contribution to the liberation of the Republic of Abkhazia from the Georgian occupation forces was significant. The names of the fighters of the Tkuarchal regiment who died the death of the brave are inscribed in golden letters in the archives of our common Victory! Eternal memory to them!
Today the city of Tkuarchal and the Tkuarchal District confidently enter into peaceful creative life. The centre of the city is being rebuilt, and healthcare, education, cultural and sport facilities are being reconstructed. Transports communications that connect the city with villages, other district centres and the republic as a whole are being restored.
I am confident that in the next few years, we will have new opportunities for the full revival of the city.
Happy city day, dear residents of Tkuarchal! Happiness, prosperity and new achievements for the benefit of our native Tkuarchal and our wonderful Apsny”.
