Republik Abchasien  
Абхазия - Abchasija 
Apchasetis Awtonomiuri Respublika

Abkhazia is a region of 8,600 km² in the Caucasus, which is de jure an autonomous republic of Georgia, but which proclaimed independence after a war in the early 1990s. Although it is not recognized internationally as a separate nation, Abkhazia remains largely de facto independent of Georgia and maintains control over a large part of its territory, including the capital of Sukhumi on the Black Sea. 

The de jure Government of Abkhazia, the only body internationally recognized as a legal authority of Abkhazia, is located in the Kodori Valley, part of Georgian-controlled Upper Abkhazia.
