Now, many refugees occupy various administrative buildings in the capital and do not want to move to a relatively poor province.
The Georgian leadership calls on the people who had fled from the war in Abkhazia and South Ossetia to leave non-residential buildings in Tbilisi and offers them accommodation in other regions of the country. The refugees resist, arranging mass public protest rallies, as well as seek support from foreign countries and organizations.
Currently in Georgia there are approximately 200,000 displaced persons, many of whom live in Tbilisi. The likelihood of their returning to Abkhazia and South Ossetia is little because Sukhumi and Tskhinvali do not recognize their right to return.
The German embassy has promised to respond the applicants within ten days.
