Psou (Georgian: სალმე, Abkhaz: Ҧсоу, Estonian: Salme, Russian: Сальме) is a village in Abkhazia,[note 1] Georgia. It was founded in 1884 by Estonian resettlers from Kuusalu, Governorate of Estonia. Nowadays, most of the inhabitants are Abkhaz, as most of the Estonians were repatriated during the 1992-1993 Georgian-Abkhaz war. The village has subsequently been renamed Psou by Abkhaz authorities after the Psou River.
Notes and references
- Abkhazia's status is disputed. It considers itself to be an independent state, but this is recognised by only a few other countries. The Georgian government and most of the world's other states consider Abkhazia de jure a part of Georgia's territory. In Georgia's official subdivision it is an autonomous republic, whose government sits in exile in Tbilisi.
