It gives an overview of the conflict including political and economic aspects of its escalation. Additionally, the authors analyze the process of conflict settlement from both Georgian and Russian perspectives and examine the case for Abkhazian statehood based on Kosovo. This issue also includes a Russian popular opinion poll concerning the frozen conflicts on the territory of the former Soviet Union.
