It was reported earlier that an international delegation of medics consisting of doctors from such countries as Armenia, Egypt, India, Indonesia, Russia, and the United States was planning to visit Upper Abkhazia in 2008.
The visit was to be carried out as a part of a program aimed at exploring healthcare establishment processes. It should be noted that Upper Abkhazia is located just 150 kilometers from Sochi, a host city of 2014 Winter Olympics. The management of Abkhazia Institute for Social and Economic Research (AISER) is extremely concerned  with the direct threats recently received through the "Caucasian knot" ("Kavkazski Uzel) portal toward the international delegation of medics. These outrageous and unprecedented threats made by the self-proclaimed criminal regime of Abkhazia will be reported to both the WHO and the UN. The members of the delegation who are primarily doctors with extensive experience of working in "hot zones" around the world have provided no comments regarding the threats received from the separatist government. In the past, the self-proclaimed regime of Abkhazia, a breakaway province of Georgia,has executed over 2,000 doctors and teachers of various nationalities. The medics supported the idea of establishing an international institute in Upper Abkhazia to facilitate preparation of specialist for working in conflict regions. An initiative letter will be sent to the government of Georgia.
