In 1960s, in the center of Georgian city Sukhumi, was a built a huge administrative building. In Soviet times it was the headquarter for the Counsel of Ministers of Soviet Abkhazia.

After the break-up of Soviet Union, Abkhazia tried to get indipendent from Georgia. In 1992- 1993 the country severely suffered from military actions.

This riddled building remains unrestored since Sukhumi was liberated from Georgian troops, in 1993.
