"Anembassy of Abkhazia" (Not the Embassy of Abkhazia) in the Basque Country

An exhibition of the French director Eric Baudelaire takes place in the Cultural Exhibition Center "Tabacalera" in San Sebastian (Spain) . Within the framework of this exhibition the film "Letters to Max"  is presented and the "Anembassy of Abkhazia" (The Embassy of Abkhazia) is opened. The Vice-President of the "International Fund Apsny" Maxim Gvindzhia  accepts a lot of visitors in his office in San Sebastian including journalists, researchers, philosophers and ordinary citizens who want to learn more about Abkhazia its culture and modern life.
The "Anembassy of Abkhazia" ​​began in 2014 in Paris. "For 3 years, we have opened such  cultural representation of Abkhazia in Norway, the United States, the United Arab Emirates and today we are in the Basque Country." Other works by Eric Baudelaire are also interesting: they reveal little-known facts about states, people, information space and about how we understand others and how this understanding can impose on us" said Maxim Gvindzhia.
There is a special interest in the problems of Abkhazia among the Basques.The Basques are striving to preserve their culture and language same as Abkhazia. 
They survived many ups and downs, lost their independence in 1937 and  experienced severe upheavals and discrimination during Franco's time.
Basques managed to preserve their culture and language. Today  numerous projects are being implemented to develop their language. There is a language institute and committees for the development of culture and language in Basque Country similar to Abkhazia.
In this respect we can  consider projects to establish links between the scientific and public circles of the Basque Country and Abkhazia.
"Anembassy of Abkhazia" is a significant event in the cultural life of San Sebastian.
At the end of his visit, Maxim Gvindzhia held a press conference with journalists of leading Basque publications and representatives of the public.
