Sukhumi White House has been in a sorry sight for over 18 years. This 13-storey building located in the center of the city, is like a monument to the fallen warriors which reminds the people of the war with Georgia.
Unlike regular monuments which are aimed at honouring the soldiers, this building looks like a reproach to those who wanted to build a new life in the repuclic.
This is pretty strange that they have neither reconstructed it yet nor demolished.
Any person may enter this building to do the deed! In the picture you can see a pile of garbage inside the building.
In the middle of the building there is a grove.
Taking into account the fact that it is located in the subtropics, it is sure that nature will take this unnecessary for people building back very quickly .
Some years ago people used to debate, approve or reject bills here but when the war began, it turned into a target for soldiers and a shelter for snipers. Then all of them left.
This square had either marble or asphalt floor but now it is overgrown with grass and looks like a nice golf field.
These are traces of firing and a reflection of the music taste some of its inhabitants had.
