Abkhazia starts restoring houses destroyed by explosions

In the village of Primorskoe, builders started repairing houses, destroyed by explosions at an ammunition depot. Local residents requested the authorities to speed up a search for unexploded shells near their houses.

The "Caucasian Knot" has reported that on August 2 and 3, during explosions at the ammunition depot near the village of Primorskoe in the Gudauta District of Abkhazia, two women of Saint Petersburg were killed and 64 other people were injured.

"The first house we started to restore is a house of Akhra Khalbad, a resident of the village," said Dikran Khintba, the director of the construction organization under the Gudauta administration, as quoted by the "Sputnik Abkhazia".

According to him, about 100 houses were damaged in the village. New houses will be erected instead of seven buildings to be demolished.

Residents of the Primorskoe village complain that a week after the incident, unexploded mines and shells still lay in their gardens and among vegetables.

Mirab Kishmariya, Abkhazian Minister of Defence, has arrived at a meeting with the villagers, reported Roland Djodjua, the press secretary for the Ministry of Defence (MoD). According to him, in the period of August 3-10, combat engineers more than 800 mines and shells in the village of Primorskoe and its surroundings.
