Historical tensions between Georgia and Abkhazia to blame on Turkey

Summary of Disinformation

Alienation between Georgians and Abkhaz is linked to the ethnic Turk, Konstantin Ozgan, who acted on the instructions of Turkey and Muslim North Caucasians.

Asaval-Dasavali printed outlet

No fact confirms any political links between the Turkish state and Konstantin Ozgan, who was actively involved in the political unrest in Abkhazia and held senior positions in Abkhaz Autonomous Soviet Socialist Republic and later in occupied Abkhazia. Ozgan was a Soviet Army major and has been awarded an Honorary Order.
