'''Abkhazia''' ( ''Abkhaziya'') is a disputed territory and partially recognised state (International recognition of Abkhazia and South Ossetia) controlled by a separatist government on the eastern coast of the Black Sea and the south-western flank of the Caucasus.

Abkhazia considers itself an independent state, called the '''Republic of Abkhazia''' or '''Apsny'''. Art. 1 of the Constitution of the Republic of Abkhazia Olga Oliker, Thomas S. Szayna.

The Georgian government (Government of Georgia (country)), United Nations and the majority of the world's governments consider Abkhazia a part of Georgia's territory, though Georgia is not in control of it. Under Georgia's official designation it is an autonomous republic, called the '''Autonomous Republic of Abkhazia''', whose government (Government of the Autonomous Republic of Abkhazia) sits in exile in Tbilisi.

The status of Abkhazia is a central issue of the Georgian–Abkhazian conflict. The wider region formed part of the Soviet Union until 1991. As the Soviet Union began to disintegrate towards the end of the 1980s, ethnic tensions grew between the Abkhaz (Abkhaz people) and Georgians (Georgian people) over Georgia's moves towards independence. This led to the 1992–1993 War in Abkhazia (War in Abkhazia (1992–1993)) that resulted in a Georgian military defeat, ''de facto'' independence of Abkhazia and the mass exodus and ethnic cleansing of the Georgian population (Ethnic cleansing of Georgians in Abkhazia) from Abkhazia. In spite of the 1994 ceasefire agreement (Agreement on a Cease-fire and Separation of Forces) and years of negotiations, the status dispute has not been resolved, and despite the long-term presence of a United Nations monitoring force (UNOMIG) and a Russian-dominated Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) peacekeeping operation, the conflict has flared up on several occasions. In August 2008, the sides again fought during the South Ossetia War (2008 South Ossetia war), which was followed by the formal recognition of Abkhazia by Russia, the annulment of the 1994 ceasefire agreement and the termination of the UN and OSCE missions.

Abkhazia, Transnistria, Nagorno-Karabakh (Nagorno-Karabakh Republic), and South Ossetia are post-Soviet "frozen conflict" zones. OSCE: De Gucht Discusses Montenegro Referendum, Frozen Conflicts, GlobalSecurity.org, Radio Free Europe Radio Liberty, May 2006 Vladimir Socor,
