Ruslan Alekseyevich Ajinjal (Abkhazian: Руслан Аџьынџьал, Russian: Руслан Алексеевич Аджинджал, born 22 June 1974 in Gagra) is a former football player from Abkhazia and a former Chairman of the Football Federation of Abkhazia. He last played for FC Krasnodar in the Russian Premier League. He is an identical twin brother of Beslan Ajinjal.


On 12 June 2014, Ajinjal signed a one-year contract with Russian Premier League team FC Krasnodar.[1] On 7 June 2015, Ajinjal announced his retirement.[2][3]

President of the Football Federation of Abkhazia[edit]

On 8 September 2015, the Football Federation of Abkhazia announced that the upcoming leadership election had been moved forward to October from the Spring of 2016, so as to leave more time for the preparation of the 2016 ConIFA World Football Cup, hosted by Abkhazia.[4] Ruslan Ajinjal became the only candidate for the post after incumbent Chairman Jemal Gubaz announced his immediate resignation on 21 September.[3][5] On 15 October, Ajinjal was elected unanimously.[6]

On 24 January 2017, Ajinjal resigned as Chairman, and on 25 February, the coach of Abkhazia's national football team Juma Kvaratskhelia was unanimously elected as his successor.[7]
