Abkhaz World has been redesigned

AbkhazWorld Website

Information is valuable as long as it is shared. AbkhazWorld.com has been working in line with this belief since 1 January 2009. One of the most important goals for AW has been to create an informational resource about Abkhazia and the Abkhazians especially for non-Abkhazians wishing to learn more about the heritage, culture, and history of the Abkhazian people.

Why doesn't Turkey recognise Abkhazia? By Erhan Hapae

I am not sure, but presumably so as not to annoy Georgia. Perhaps to Putin.
