The main part of the present book is a demonstration of the international legitimacy of the Abkhazian State. For the sake of convenience the text is given in the form of questions and answers. Attached to the main article are historical tables and statistical data, as well as images of historical symbols and portraits of the leaders of Abkhazia, from the period of the Abkhazian Kingdom to the modern times. © V.A.
