“Our states and nations are united by a common history, which goes back into antiquity. We have a common Nart Epos and almost the same songs that do not require translation. Another uniting factor is our nature, the Caucasus. Our joint struggle over the last twenty five years has drawn us together. Thanks to the efforts, made by the authorities of Abkhazia and South Ossetia, we have gained international recognition”.
