Day of the Armed Forces of Abkhazia (11/10)

On October 11, 1992, Vladislav Ardzinba, Chairman of the Presidium of the Supreme Council of the Republic of Abkhazia, signed a Decree on the establishment of the Ministry of Defense and the General Staff. This date is officially considered the Day of the Creation of the Armed Forces of the Republic of Abkhazia - the birthday of the Abkhaz army.

The decree on the creation of the Armed Forces of Abkhazia was signed at the very height of the Patriotic War. The armed forces of Abkhazia were created in combat conditions, in the conditions of a real cruel war, a war for the independence of the republic.

A powerful and modern army even today is the main guarantee of the existence of an independent Abkhazian state. That is why the Abkhazian army is distinguished by its high combat capability - after all, the fate of the nation and the entire state depended on it and still depends.
