SSR Abkhazia[edit]

Do you have any recollection why the (correct) name "Soviet Socialist Republic of Abkhazia" was changed to Socialist Soviet Republic of Abkhazia? If we look at the heraldry from 1921, we clearly see "Сов. Соц. Республика Абхазия". So what happened here? And do you think we should try to rectify the situation by a couple of judicious redirects? --Zlerman (talk) 15:57, 24 November 2008 (UTC)

When did Abkhazia start having ministers?[edit]

Do you know when Abkhazia started having ministers? Was it with the 1994 constitution, with the 1992 constitution or were there also ministers in the Soviet time? (I believe there is sometimes mention of 'ministers' during that time but I'm wondering whether they weren't officially named something else, like 'chairman'.) I'm asking because of the numbering with respect to the Prime Ministers and Ministers for Foreign Affairs and Defence. sephia karta 13:30, 26 November 2008 (UTC)

Ok, but that leaves the question as of when we should start counting. I mean, for the Foreign and Defence Minister posts, it seems straightforward, since they were created at a certain point, but other minister posts have existed for much longer, and I think we want to be consistant across the board. And in 1992, constitutionally it was still the Abkhazian ASSR. So I would propose that either we find a date that we take as starting point (this could be the 1994 constitution, the end of the war, the beginning of the war, the 1992 constitution or any other date), or we leave out the ordering all together for ministers. The beginning of the war could be a good point, because it seems that during the war, a lot of these institutions were created. Do you know whether there were also Prime Ministers during the Soviet area or whether also that post was created only during the war? sephia karta 12:52, 27 November 2008 (UTC)
The problem is the following: you say that we shouldn't include Soviet era ministers when counting, and I tend to agree. But when do we start counting then? For the Minister of Defence it may be easy, since that post was only created in 1992, but, who was the 'fírst' Minister of Justice? That's what I was adressing. sephia karta 18:18, 28 November 2008 (UTC)
Ok, I didn't know that, I had assumed that most non-Georgian ministers from before the war simply retained their posts. Was there really such a clear cut, where during a couple of months (or weeks) the government was without ministers? (This is what I understand when you say "I suspect that most of the ministers were appointed much later, in 1993."sephia karta | di mi 14:16, 30 November 2008 (UTC)

Transnistrian Flag[edit]

Alaexis,may I suggest to you that you revert yourself regarding the Transnistrian flag. It is the practice of wikipedia to use the civil flags and NOT state flags, see Germany for example, thsi si the main reason for you to change. BUT, also the use of the hammer and sickle is pushed by Transnistrian haters, who believe that this old flag has an ecomonical negative impact on the economy there. There is some truth to this. On the other palm It can be argued that such anti Transnistria practices only serves to bond Transnistrians even closer together. Tommyxx (talk) 15:46, 16 December 2008 (UTC)

Mukhamed Kilba[edit]

Hi, thanks for the well wishes, and a belated happy new year and merry Christmas to you as well!

I was searching the internet for references regarding the beginning and end dates of the Abkhazian ministers of Defence, and I reached the conclusion that Mukhamed Kilba, who is listed at the Russian Wikipedia, never was Defence Minister. The only news reports I could dig up said that a government source reported this, and the Caucasus Knot added that this was being denied by Prime Minister Nodar Khashba. Furthermore, there is a Caucasus Knot news report from January 2005 which quotes Eshba as Defence Minister, and another news story which mentions Eshba as Sosnaliev's predecessor.

Basically what I wanted to ask from you is whether it seems likely to you that Kilba never was Defence Minister, or whether you have information to the contrary. Thanks! sephia karta | di mi 01:42, 18 January 2009 (UTC)

Abkhazia maps[edit]

Hey Alaexis, here's something that may come in handy for you. - 4 pages of multiple numbers of maps of Abkhazia from many sources and many years. To get the full-sized image, simply remove ?width=XXX&height=YYY from behind the .jpg filename. Hope there is something useful for you in here, as most of them look like they can be uploaded to commons. --Russavia Dialogue 15:02, 3 March 2009 (UTC)


Просьба помочь со статьёй о русском языке. Она номинирована в хорошие, однако обнаружились некоторые недостатки, которые необходимо срочно устранить. SkyBonTalk\Contributions 14:32, 17 May 2009 (UTC)


Hi. Honestly, Aleaxis, do you really think that the certain БОНДАРЕВ, мастер спорта СССР по туризму, and published by “Физкультура и спорт” is a reliable source on the sensitive and complicated topic such as the Abkhazian typonymy?--KoberTalk 15:12, 7 June 2009 (UTC)

I'll update the link, but the problem here is not Bondarev's bias, but his reliability as a scholar. And why am I supposed to find the "source where Bondarev must have taken his toponymy section from"? I think it's up to you. --KoberTalk 15:38, 7 June 2009 (UTC)

Ссылки на журналиста[edit]

Можно ли ссылаться на журналиста, не указывая, где были опубликованы его слова? См. Apswaaa (talk) 21:57, 9 June 2009 (UTC)

Червонная также не дает ссылку. Из того, что у нее написано, не понятно, кто именно совершил эти действия. Разве это не основание, чтобы удалить эту цитату?
В статье есть и др. ненадежные места. «UN Security Council passed series of resolutions in which is appeals for a cease-fire and condemned the Abkhaz policy of ethnic-cleansing» — нет ссылок на резолюции. «The reports included a detailed description of how the separatists played soccer with the heads of dead Georgians on the field after the executions in Gagra» — нет ссылки на доклад.
В статье Часто ссылаются на книгу Червонной, но не используют этот документ В нем в частности говорится:
35. ...After the Abkhazianforces had taken Sukhumi, most Georgians living in the region between theGumista and Inguri Rivers tried to flee before the arrival of the Abkhazian forces. Some others who stayed behind were reportedly killed when the Abkhazians took control of villages and cities in Ochamchira region.
50. The victims included members of all ethnic groups inhabiting Abkhazia.
51. Both Georgian government forces and Abkhazian forces, as well as irregulars and civilians cooperating with them or enjoying their acquiescence, have been responsible for such human rights violations.
52. ...There are indications, in the latter connection, that during the administration of the area between the Gumista and Inguri Rivers by Georgian government representatives, a large number of Abkhazians had left. Conversely, entire regions, such as Gali and Ochamchira, have now been deserted by almost all of their Georgian (Mingrelian) population, which had constituted a large majority there, and most Georgians also appear to have left Sukhumi. On the basis of the information collected, the mission was not in a position to ascertain whether it had been an actively pursued policy of the authorities of either side, at any time, to clear the areas under their control of either the Abkhazian or the Georgian population. Only further careful investigation and evaluation can establish the relevant facts in a conclusive manner. Apswaaa (talk) 11:48, 10 June 2009 (UTC)

Editing survey[edit]

Hi. My name is Mike Lyons and I am a doctoral student at Indiana University in the United States. I am conducting research on the writing and editing of high traffic current events articles on Wikipedia. I have noticed in the talk page archives at 2008 South Ossetia war that you have contributed to the editing or maintenance of the article. I was hoping you would agree to fill out a brief survey about your experience. This study aims to help expand our thinking about collaborative knowledge production. Believe me I share your likely disdain for surveys but your participation would be immensely helpful in making the study a success. A link to the survey is included below. An explanation of my project is included with the survey.

Title Namimg[edit]

I noticed you mentioned the naming of Mitrovica on the talk page, could you please give your opinion at Talk:Kosovska Mitrovica#Mitrovica? Regards

You Russians are so 'sovietic' even after 20 years. If you ask for sources to prove something that is so obvious like the very bad infrastructure from Transnistria. You just waste my time. --Ghimpu Moldova 1 (talk) 19:52, 4 September 2009 (UTC)

Oh no you didn't! :)[edit]

I seriously recommend you do not discuss with User:Imbris. It is absolutely and utterly futile. Nobody discussed with him more than me, but if he should happen to perceive something as "anti-Croatian" (for whatever contrived reason) he will argue about it to the last, yes, even if directly contradicted by several university publications (in which case he'll attack the publications). Just look at this scene of carnage [1]. --DIREKTOR (TALK) 15:13, 30 September 2009 (UTC)

Socket puppets and so on[edit]

Hello Alaexis, I saw that you are or were active about the analysis of socket groups and other abusing (neonazi direction) of Wikipedia (see here: and the group: ). I saw in the corresponding articles that a user is active in the same directions and using the same methods, see (even has the "and his crime-fighting dog" in his signature like the refered socket puppet).

Искажение источников[edit]

A terrible find has been made by the local residents of the mountains of Abkhazia, near the spot where clashes with the sea-born landing troops (attempting to cut the Ochamchire-Sokhumi highway) had taken place..Pieces of a human body were hanging on long wires from tree..Those were remains of two skinned Georgian men..It is not only soldiers that are killed. In the same woods, near one village there I found a corpse of a pregnant Georgian women. She had been raped and disemboweled”. Червонная таким образом цитирует Холодова: "Страшную находку обнаружили местные жители в горах Абхазии на Черноморском побережье, там, где недавно шли бои с морским десантом, пытавшимся перерезать магистраль Очамчира -Сухуми... На дереве на проволоке висели куски человеческого тела... двух освежеванных людей ... Режут не только солдат. В тех же лесах в одной из деревушек нашли труп женщины. Она была беременна. Ее изнасиловали и выпотрошили. В статье же Холодова (МК, 1993, 29 июля, с. 3) написано: «Установить национальность двух освежеванных людей так и не удалось — обезображенные трупы не имеют национальности». — Apswaaa (talk) 20:37, 20 December 2009 (UTC)

Я думал написать об этом, после того как в моем распоряжении будет вся статья Холодова. Я плохо знаком с правилами Вики, но разве газетная статья является надежным источником? —Preceding unsigned comment added by Apswaaa (talkcontribs) 19:40, 21 December 2009 (UTC)
Почему, газетная статья - нормальный источник. Ну и потом, достаточно несоответствия между книжкой и текстом, который на неё ссылается, чтобы поднять вопрос, а статья - это уже подтверждение. Alæxis¿question? 19:46, 21 December 2009 (UTC)
Ссылки на книгу без указания страниц, ссылки на газету без указания номера — это нормально? Apswaaa (talk) 20:16, 23 December 2009 (UTC)
На газету без номера - нет. На книгу, если она выложена в интернете - да, подразумевая что она выложена без искажений. В данном случае трудно себе представить что на abkhazeti исказили книгу таким образом. Alæxis¿question? 07:40, 24 December 2009 (UTC)
Я не об искажениях. Там ссылаются на книгу Червонной без указания страниц. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Apswaaa (talkcontribs) 19:55, 24 December 2009 (UTC)
А, в статье. Ну если ты сомневаешься в чём-то на что такая некачественная ссылка, то можешь попросить уточнить страницу на talk page или поставить [verification needed] в крайнем случае. Я так делаю по крайней мере, и жду после этого некоторое время перед тем как предпринять что-то. В данном случае, когда книга Червонной выложена, легче самому проверить, имхо. Alæxis¿question? 21:10, 24 December 2009 (UTC)
Там на англ. вариант книги Червонной ссылаются. Не нашел его в сети. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Apswaaa (talkcontribs) 01:46, 25 December 2009 (UTC)

Wikipedia Stories Project[edit]


Меня зовут Виктор, и я рассказчик с Wikimedia Foundation, некоммерческая организация, которая поддерживает Википедию. Я хроник вдохновляющих историй сообщества Википедии по всему миру, в том числе и читателей, редакторов и доноров. Истории совершенно необходимы для любой некоммерческой органицации, чтобы убедить людей поддержывать наш проект, и мы знаем, что у людей, которые строют и используют Википедии есть много, что рассказать!

Я ищу вдохновляющие страницы пользователей, и интересных историй о том, как Википедия влияют на жизнь людей. Я задавал вопросы вроде "Как Википедия изменила Вашу жизнь?", "Какая самая интересная история у Вас есть о Википедии?" и "Википедия ли когда-нибудь Вас удивило?"

В прошлом году мы использовали ежегодный сбор средств как способ показать миру, кто на самом деле пишет Википедия. Мы показывали редакторов из Бразилии, Украины, Аргентины, Саудовской Аравии, Кении, Индии, США и Англии. Этот метод имел огромный успех, в результате чего у нас была наиболее финансово успешная кампании по сбору средств в историе организации. Кроме того, мы остались верны духу Википедии, просвещение общественности, что это бесплатно ТОП-5 Сайт создан добровольцами, как Ви и я.

В этом году мы хотим выделить еще редакторов Википедии на русском языке, так что я нахожусь в процессе планирования поездки в Россию и интервью с редакторами.

Если Википедия положительно повлеяла на Вас или на кого-то из Ваших знакомых, или у Вас есть что-то интересное сказать о Википедии, я бы очень хотел услышать об этом!

Пожалуйста, дайте мне знать, если Ви бы хотели участвовать в проекте Истории Википедии, или если вы знаете кого-то еще, с кем я должен поговорить.

Конечно, если у Вас есть какие-либо вопросы или сомнения, пожалуйста, обращайтесь! Я отвечу, как только смогу. Извините за плохой перевод этого письма, я использую Google-перевод. Я надеюсь, что заставляет вас смеяться :)

Спасибо за Ваше время,

Victor Grigas



My name is Victor and I'm a storyteller with the Wikimedia Foundation, the non-profit organization that supports Wikipedia. I'm chronicling the inspiring stories of the Wikipedia community around the world, including those from readers, editors, and donors. Stories are absolutely essential for any non-profit to persuade people to support the cause, and we know the vast network of people who make and use Wikipedia have so much to share.

I'm scouring user pages looking for inspiring, motivating and interesting stories of how Wikipedia has affected the lives of people. I'm asking questions like "How has Wikipedia changed your life?", "What's the most interesting story you have about Wikipedia?" and "Has Wikipedia ever surprised you?"

Last year, we used the annual fundraiser as a way to show the world who it is who actually writes Wikipedia. We featured editors from Brazil, Ukraine, Argentina, Saudi Arabia, Kenya, India, United States and England. This campaign was a huge success, resulting in the most financially successful fundraising campaign ever. It was also a campaign that stayed true to the spirit of Wikipedia, educating the public that this free top-5 website is created by volunteers like you and I.

This year we want to highlight more Russian-language Wikipedia editors, so I am in the process of planning a trip to Russia to interview editors.

If you or someone you know (or have heard about) has been positively affected by Wikipedia, or have something interesting to say about Wikipedia I'd very much like to hear about it!

Please let me know if you're inclined to take part in the Wikipedia Stories Project, or if you know someone else with whom I should speak.

Of course, if you have any questions or concerns, please ask! I will answer as soon as I can. I apologize for any poor translation of this letter, I am using Google-translate. I hope it makes you laugh :)

Thank you for your time,

  1. ^ == Maps ==
    Carte de la Georgie, 1920.jpg
    Territorial losses of Georgia after the Russian red army occupation in 1921.jpg

    I think that the 2 maps to the right should not be used at all in this article or anywhere else in the en:WP. Here are the issues with them:

    1. There are factual errors in them, along with territories actually controlled by Georgians it shows as Georgian territories that were assigned to Georgia according to the Treaty of Sevres, but were never controlled by DRG, such as modern Turkey's Black Sea coast with towns of Rize and Hopa. This very article says:

    2. Both are not in English (1st - French, 2nd - Georgian), and would be thus hard to understand for an English-speaking reader

    3. The quality of both is below satisfactory, in case of the upper map no captions can be discerned.

    4. The name of the lower map (Territorial losses of Georgia after the Russian red army occupation in 1921) fails NPOV, as not all these losses happened "after" or were caused by Soviet occupation, i. e. Sochi region.

    Also, the territories DRG actually controlled were not controlled simultaneously: for example Sochi region was lost by Georgia in May 1919, while Batumi and Lori region were only incorporated in 1920. Both maps fail to clarify this to the reader.

    We can discuss the pros and cons of the old map here, but if it comes from Robert H. Hewsen's "Armenia: A Historical Atlas" (2001), page 236, as claimed here, then I don't see any NPOV or RS problems with it, and in terms of readablity and clarity it's clearly superior to the maps to the right.
