“Adjara is more firmly under Tbilisi's control than Stratfor seems to think.”
“Adjara is a fairly benign criminal warlordship run by one Aslan Abashidze, whose power over Aslanistan, as it is locally known, is made possible by the customs duties he extracts on legal and illegal goods entering by sea or over this land border with Turkey.”
“He quickly succeeded in forcing Adjara into submission with an economic blockade.”
“The suspects announced Friday were accused of operating out of Adjara, a western Georgian province that had been a Moscow-backed rebel region until Tbilisi regained control of it in 2004.”
“They burnt my house and even though I swore on the Koran that I am not a witch, they wouldn't believe me," explained Adjara as she prepared dinner under the protection of the camp's gendarmes.”
“Adjara, an ethnic Peul refugee from the Central African Republic CAR, has yet to be accepted by a community in any of the three camps in south-western Chad.”
“However, despite the verdict, the atmosphere in the camps remains hostile toward the acquitted women and several, including Adjara, have yet to return to the main camp communities.”
“Two roadblocks signaled the end of Adjara and the beginning of Georgia proper.”
“Eventually the increasingly desperate Gamsakhurdia positioned himself alongside Georgia's historic rivals: Muslim Chechnya, Abashidze's Adjara, and even Abkhazia, where a Russian-backed separatist rebellion caused 10,000 deaths and the cleansing of more than 200,000 ethnic Georgians from Abkhaz territory.”
“I had entered Adjara, a small region of Georgia where a Georgian dialect is spoken and the population is mainly Muslim.”
