How the dacha was handed over

On December 27, 2023, the Parliament of Abkhazia ratified the agreement on the transfer of the state dacha in Pitsunda to Russia (since 1995, it had been leased from the Russian state). The Russian Ambassador to Sukhum, Mikhail Shurgalin, then clarified that only buildings, the maintenance and repair of which will be carried out by the Federal Security Service of Russia, are transferred into ownership, and the land itself on which the facility is located (180 hectares) is not transferred to the Russian side and remains leased for 40 years. Reports of the agreement sparked protests by the republic's opposition outside the parliament building in Sukhum as a violation of the constitution.
