Rashid Nurgaliyev’s last visit to Abkhazia took place in June last year. Then he met with the country's leader Raul Khadjimba and discussed regional security issues with him. Then he attended a joint meeting of the apparatuses of the Russian and Abkhazian Security Councils. There it was a question of implementing a program of investment in the socio-economic development of the republic.
Today’s visit of the Russian representative is connected with yesterday’s unrest in Sukhumi, where an attempt was made to storm the presidential administration by opposition representatives. Recall that the protesters demanded that the president resign from power, but the head of the republic refused. There were clashes between opponents of the incumbent president and his supporters.
