On June 15, President of the Republic of Abkhazia Raul Khadzhimba congratulated the Head of the State Guard Service Otar Berzenia, and the employees and veterans of the State Guard Service on the 25th anniversary.
I congratulate all employees and veterans of the State Guard Service on the 25th anniversary.
The Guard Service of the President was created in the difficult war years, when there was a great threat to the security of the state and its leadership headed by the First President V. G. Ardzinba.
The employees of the State Guard Service demonstrate effective and perfect training, when they provide the security of the Head of State and other individuals under protection.
In the past 25 years, a lot has changed in the structure of the State Guard Service. Today we have a well-staffed institution, where professionals and true patriots of their country work. It is important to remember and honour the memory of those employees who lost their lives for the freedom and independence of Abkhazia in the years of the Patriotic War of the People of Abkhazia. Many employees also died in the post-war years, while carrying out their official duties.
On this festive day, I would like to thank you, Otar Nuryevich, and all employees and veterans of the State Guard Service for the impeccable, loyal and honest service, and to wish you all strong health, peace, prosperity and successes in your difficult and responsible work.
