Sukhum. 25 September. Apsnypress. The ceremonial event "Congress of winners" dedicated to the 25th anniversary of the Victory and Independence Day takes place in Sukhum.
 President of the Republic of Abkhazia Raul Khajimba addressed the solemn event:
 "Dear veterans and participants of today's meeting!
 In the glorious year of the 25th anniversary of the Victory in the War of Abkhazia, on the eve of September 30, we are holding such a forum for the first time - a gathering of people who won freedom and independence, war veterans and volunteers, defenders of the long-suffering Apsny.
 There is an independent Abkhazian state for a quarter of a century. Over the years, we have passed through the most difficult trials, but never have allowed the possibility of abandoning our gains. Perseverance and focus on achieving goals, self-sacrifice in the name of independence made it possible to recognize Abkhazia's sovereignty by the Russian Federation in 2008.
    We were all united on the battlefields because we had a crystal clear goal - to defeat the enemy, save the country, our families and friends from conquest and destruction, to ensure that the Abkhaz people were not wiped off the face of the earth with their culture and statehood.
 We achieved the Victory, because we believed in our rightness and supreme justice.  

   Our people and those who came to our aid - brothers-volunteers, showed the best human qualities: courage, honor, the highest love for their homeland.
 War is not only deprivation and death, it is a time when everything true is revealed in every person and in society as a whole. And this truth consists in an ineradicable desire to be free and independent, to live in a prosperous and stable state, to raise children and to think about the future.
 Today we continue to think about war or, better to say, about fighting, but already on a peaceful front. Having won the war we must not lose the world. 

 We must all unite and  fight for the safety and health of the nation, economic and social development, strengthening of statehood, law and order, international position of Abkhazia.
 Who, if not the winners, participants of the war have the highest authority in the society? Who, if not you should be the driving force behind positive change? Therefore, all of us have tremendous responsibility for the present and future of our country.
 Much has already been done. Over the past few years, Abkhazia has been able to advance international recognition, bring a new level of relations with Russia, and make significant progress in defense and security matters.
 But there are even more problems and challenges ahead. The winners should not be split, divided into political and other camps. We must be unite. We must not allow the feat of the people to be devalued by the failures of peaceful development. Our task is to preserve the memory of the war, the heroism of the glorious sons and daughters of Apsny, to do everything so that Abkhazia will remain in the centuries as a sovereign and independent state in which it will be comfortable and joyful to live, which future generations will be proud of.
 The present forum is significant for the first time awarding the medal "Aiaaairazy" ("For Victory"), which was established by the Decree of the Supreme Council of the Republic of Abkhazia on December 4, 1992. It was assumed that the medal "Aiaaairazy" ("For Victory") will be awarded to persons who took direct part in the battles, as well as workers in the rear during the War of Abkhazia in 1992-1993. However, due to the shortcomings of the regulatory framework, rewarding this medal has never been done.
 We decided that right now, on the eve of the 25th anniversary of the Victory, it is necessary to correct this historical injustice.
 Today we are honored to reward posthumously those whose role in the greatest event of the recent history of the Abkhaz people - our Victory - was decisive. Vladislav Ardzinba, Sergey Bagapsh, Sultan Sosnaliev, Vladimir Arshba, Sergey Dbar, Givi Agrba, Mushni Khvartskiya, first awarded with the Aiaarazy medal. Their names are forever in our memory, in the genetic code of our people.
 This award will find everyone who participated in the war - dead and now living veterans and workers of the rear.
 I want to wish all veterans of the war and their families good health, prosperity and a peaceful sky over their heads.
 Together we defeated on the fronts of the war, together we stand today!
 Happy Victory and Independence Day! "
