I sincerely congratulate you on this beautiful spring holiday - the International Women’s Day!
On this wonderful day, which brings positive emotions and new hopes, we express gratitude to you, our mothers, wives, daughters and sisters for your kindness, love and support.
Together with our men, you have endured all the hardships and privations of war. In the difficult years of the economic blockade, you have carried the cares for the families and the state on your fragile shoulders. Without these acts of bravery on the part of our women, there would not have been an independent and sovereign Abkhazian state.
On this day, it is traditional for us to pay tribute to the mothers who have brought up valiant defenders of Abkhazia.
It is a joy to see that modern Abkhazian women are not only homemakers, but that they also reach the heights of their professions, actively participate in the social and political life and reach success in business.
It is our duty to do everything so that you are happy, dear women. May not only these spring days, but all the days of the year be festive for you.
I wish you, our dear women, strong health, prosperity and happiness!
