70 years ago Chorus of long-livers of Abkhazia touring around the world, gave an interview to a British edition. Journalist long and carefully asked about Abkhazia, Abkhazian people, its traditions and history. The interview dragged on so much that one of the long-livers asked the counter question: “Tell me, what the distance between the Truth and the Falsehood is?” Journalist started to tarry. He did not know how to answer. Sometime later, the long-livers answered his own question: “Four fingers” and then raised in the air four fingers (from the index finger to the little finger) and put them to his temple. “Four fingers – that is the distance between the Truth and the Falsehood. Between what you hear and what you see». The journalist blushed and smiled. The answer seemed so simple. Then long-liver went on: “You asked many questions. Will you trust us hearing the answers? Come – and you will see everything for yourself”. On that interview ended.
It was 70 years ago. Today those who have heard and hear about Abkhazia just do not realize for themselves that the distance between what is shown on TV, in the media and the reality is small. It is enough to come and see, and everyone can find truth.
