Raul Khajimba: the country suffered a grievous loss
A mourning rally at the funeral ceremony of Gennady Leonidovich Gagulia takes place in Gudauta.

Sukhum. 12 September. Apsnypress. At the funeral rally during the farewell ceremony with Gennady Leonidovich Gagulia, President of Abkhazia Raul Khajimba stressed that the country suffered a grievous loss.
 "The tragic death of a prominent statesman Gennady Leonidovich Gagulia shocked not only the citizens of Abkhazia, but also many of our foreign friends.
 Gennady Gagulia was a man of outstanding abilities, a major organizer, manager in the true sense of the word! It is difficult to overestimate his role in strengthening the defense capacity of our country during the War of Abkhazia. The weight of his contribution to provision of our army with weapons, ammunition, food, medicine and other necessary means. The successful fulfillment of the complex tasks set by First President Vladislav Grigorievich Ardzinba, Gennady Leonidovich sought not only for his business qualities, but also for his huge personal ties in the near and far abroad. By nature, he was a modest man, never loudly talked about his personal merits. But people who stood at the sources of our Victory know about them.
 Gennady Leonidovich held a number of high posts. Having graduated from the construction faculty of the Belarusian Polytechnic Institute, he passed a worthwhile career from a construction worker to a Prime Minister of Abkhazia. In the Soviet era, he successfully led the Gudauta regional consumer cooperation, was chairman of the State Committee for Foreign Economic Relations, then, after the war, during the worst blockade period - deputy prime minister, three times the Prime Minister of the republic, an assistant to the State Duma deputy of the Russian Federation, led the Administration of the President of Abkhazia.
 Leading the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of the republic for many years, Gennady Leonidovich managed to raise its prestige significantly, create a young and energetic team that can influence the socio-economic situation in the country. Moreover, he was able to bring the Chamber's activities to the international level. Despite the obstacles imposed by the Georgian politicians, the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of the Republic of Abkhazia managed to organize many exhibitions of achievements in the economy and culture of Abkhazia in many countries. And this work, often carried out jointly with our foreign policy department, contributed to international recognition of our state. He established reliable partnership relations with a number of Russian territorial chambers of commerce and industry, thereby strengthening our strategic and allied ties with a friendly state that recognized our independence.
 In 2016 Gennady Leonidovich Gagulia was awarded the Order of Akhhydz-Apsha of the second degree for his personal contribution to strengthening the statehood of Abkhazia, long-term fruitful work, high professionalism.
 It's hard to accept that there is not a big friend, a like-minded person, a big statesman, whose thoughts, ideas and parting ways helped to overcome the difficulties of growth and development that accompany us.
 Gennady Leonidovich was a wonderful family man, a bearer of traditional Abkhazian values. I am sure that relatives and everyone who knew him will treat with great respect everything that he was able to embody, working tirelessly for the benefit of the people and the state.
 We will remember with great gratitude our kind mentor, a colleague who made a huge contribution to the construction of a new Abkhazia.
