Georgia (Aug 1993 - Jun 2009)
 

In August 1992, the Georgian Government accused Gamsakhurdia's supporters of kidnapping Georgia's Interior Minister and holding him captive in Abkhazia. The Georgian Government dispatched 3,000 troops to the region, ostensibly to restore order. The Abkhaz were relatively unarmed at this time and the Georgian troops were able to march into Sukhumi with relatively little resistance and subsequently engaged in' ethnically based pillage, looting, assault, and murder.
