 Accord: A question of sovereignty. The Georgia-Abkhazia Peace Process
Georgians insist that Abkhazia was never completely separate from Georgia in Soviet times (accepting that the 1931 decision was a demotion for Abkhazia) and that since all changes in Abkhazia’s status and ethnic demography were implemented by a foreign occupying power Georgia cannot therefore be held responsible for them.
Georgians overwhelmingly consider Abkhazia to be a legitimate part of their country and attempts to cut it off are linked to a (neo-) imperial Russian conspiracy, just as Abkhaz consider this Georgian position an expression of ‘Georgian imperialism’.
Many Georgians consider the launching of the war in Abkhazia in 1992 to have been a mistake, and some of them are ashamed of the way Georgian troops (or the unruly militias which fought in the name of the Georgian state) behaved there.

By resolutions of the Supreme Soviet of the Georgian SSR of 18 November 1989, 9 March and 20 June 1990, all state-structures existing in Georgia from 25 February 1921 were declared illegal and void.

In this the Constitution of the Georgian SSR was not even mentioned, and there was talk of accelerating work on a new constitution 'on the basis of the stance of the Constitution of the Georgian Democratic Republic adopted on 21 February 1918'.
