On December 1, Vice President of the Republic of Abkhazia Aslan Bartsits attended a festive event on the occasion of the 140th anniversary of the village of Mtsara.
The Vice President greeted the residents of the village.
“The hospitable land of Abkhazia has welcomed people after the tragic events in Turkey. You and I already know the celebration of the Armenian community ‘Hemshin’ which aims to popularise national traditions and interethnic harmony. Abkhazia is a country where Armenians can live and work freely, study and have their newspapers. Everyone remembers the times when our common enemy wanted to annihilate not only Abkhazians but also everyone who lived on this territory. In the most difficult times for us, Armenian boys stood by our side, they have formed groups and then battalions. We honour the names of the heroes”, - said the Vice President.
