Besides, the mountainous Abkhazia is scarcely populated, for the local residents had to immigrate to the southern zone because of the economic crisis.
However, expert of Russian Center of Strategic Research Adzhar Kurtov believes that these and some other conditions will help the independent republic to draw up a sound document:
