Republic of Abkhazia Supports Catalonia

On 6 October 2017, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Abkhazia issued a statement supporting Catalonia in its struggle for self-determination, in light of the democratic referendum held last weekend.  Similarly to Catalonia, Abkhazia receives limited recognition by the international community despite the country’s independence and democratic structure. Abkhazia is saddened by the silence of European countries, which can seem to imply that dissent can be repressed by force.
