Chuburkhindji (Chuburkhinji; Georgian: ჭუბურხინჯი, Abkhazian: Хьацҳа or Ҷубурхьынџь) (known as Tzalamukhi [წალამუხი] until 1957) is a village in the Gali District of Abkhazia, Georgia. As is the case in the rest of the district its population is almost exclusively Georgian.

History[edit]

The village is the place of regular quadripartite (Georgian-Abkhaz-CIS peacekeepers-UNOMIG) meetings known informally as the "Chuburkhinji sessions". The meetings have been suspended by the Abkhaz side since November 2006.[2]

On 24 May 2012, a settlement was opened in Chuburkhinji for the families of Russian border guards.[3]

The Republic of Abkhazia unilaterally declared independence on 23 July 1992, but Georgia continues to claim it as part of its own sovereign territory and designates it as a territory occupied by Russia. Abkhazia has received formal recognition as an independent state from 7 out of 193 United Nations member states, 1 of which has subsequently withdrawn its recognition.
