On April 9, President of the Republic of Abkhazia Raul Khadzhimba congratulated the citizens, the administration and the assembly of the Tkuarchal District on the anniversary of the hero city of Tkuarchal.
Dear citizens of Tkuarchal!
The anniversary of the city of Tkuarchal is not only your celebration, but it is also a significant event which symbolises the courage and endurance of all the people of the Republic of Abkhazia who have travelled the long and difficult path to independence.
At the same time, it should be noted that the citizens of Tkuarchal made a significant contribution to the national movement of liberation and to the struggle to restore our historical statehood.
During the Patriotic War of the People of Abkhazia of 1992-1993, the besieged city became a foothold for the defence and coordination of the actions of all forces on the Eastern Front. Hundreds of soldiers of the Tkuarchal regiment fought bravely to liberate our Homeland from Georgian occupation forces. Eternal memory to the defenders of the Homeland who have deserved unfading military glory!
In the hard times, defenceless residents of many nearby villages found shelter and support in Tkuarchal. In the city’s medical institutions, the first medical aid was provided to the soldiers who came here with military injuries.
The city of miners – Tkuarchal has always been famous for its achievements in the economy, industry and culture.
I think that soon, enterprises that can revive the former high potential will start working at full capacity here again.
The first evident steps to beautify the city and the entire Tkuarchal District are being made. The prospects of developing balneology and tourism are opening up.
I am certain that the difficulties will be overcome and that Tkuarchal will become once again one of the most prosperous parts of our state.
Congratulations, dear citizens of Tkuarchal! I sincerely wish you good health, happiness and further successes!
