And in order to protect domestic producers planned to increase the excise duty on beer from 10 to 30 rubles and tobacco from 5 to 10 rubles.

General questions replenishment remain overriding in all spheres of activity. So, in the Parliament held its first discussion of the national budget for 2015. According to Finance Minister Amra Kvarandziya, the main financial document of the country this year is socially oriented. Its primary objectives - higher wages, financial support for health and education. But the budget deficit. And deficiency payments provided through internal resources: the loan in the National Bank of RA and the anticipated increase in revenue.

However, the National Bank and general banking system itself needs to be reformed. It was devoted to these problems meeting chaired by the President of Abkhazia Raul Khadjimba. He called to find out what is really happening in the banking sector and try to rectify the situation. "We have a National Bank in the form of the building and the people working in it, but there is no national banking system", - said Khadjimba.

But, the main income of the country, of course, depend on the efficiency of the economy. And here it may be useful "well forgotten old." What was once brought into the treasury very good income. For example, in Abkhazia today suspended the production of tobacco. Although scientists Research Institute of Agriculture ANA still busy preserving the collection of 500 varieties. "Every year we passaged the seeds to preserve the collection. And if we go order at any time be able to provide field seeds. Abkhazia is a very profitable industry, especially today, when tobacco of good quality is a rarity", - said the director of the Sukhum experimental farm of Tobacco of the Agricultural Research Institute ANA Anatoliy Bartsits.

The importance of the development of such industries as commercial fishing, and discussed at a meeting on the development of agriculture, which is chaired by President Raul Khadjimba. "We live by the sea, but, practically, there is no development of fisheries. Consider the possibility of launching a pilot project for the development of the fishing industry, possibly with the involvement of investors", - said the President. And such a request was made especially topically on the background of discontent of citizens by Turkish seiners fishing in the waters of the town of Gagra. At a meeting with representatives of the public of the State Committee on Ecology and Nature Protection and the Ministry of Agriculture raised the question about the release of this zone of fishing, which is carried out with violations of the conditions and limits.

But what really continues to make a humanitarian relations of the country. Thus, the Abkhaz fighters Henri Kvitsinia and Timur Akudzhba took first place in the International Tournament in freestyle wrestling on memory of Timur Frunze. In addition, kickboxers Enrique Argun and Alan Arshaniya led the standings for the championship and championship of the North Caucasian Federal District.

Bus with artists came under fire in the territory of military operations in Ukraine. There are wounded.

In Abkhazia, the theme of war is always speaks of pain in people's hearts. Although after the hostilities took more than two decades. That is why public organizations Mothers of Abkhazia and South Ossetia, which is not indifferent to the fate of the people of Ukraine, joined the mother's voice Ukraine. They issued their appeal to all people of good will, expressing deep concern and anxiety of fratricidal war, waged in Ukraine.

Sunday last week was the last day before Lent. In folk ritual, it is celebrated as "Wide carnival", and in the Christian church calendar is called "Forgiveness Sunday". This year, a day filled with special meaning: on the background of the senseless war in Ukraine, on the eve of the third Cold War, which, according to many international experts, can already be considered a fait accompli ...

But small Abkhazia, thirsting creativity and peace, has its own hard-won truth. "Peace, love, prosperity, patience, even if it is hard to achieve. Forgiving is hard, but at the same time it is easy. It is only necessary to say: "I'm sorry!" - These words of Abbot Ignatius (Kiut), said on the eve of Lent, became the epigraph to the entire history of the world, which is done these days.
