The opening ceremony took place at the Embassy of the Russian Federation in the Republic of Abkhazia.

« Dmitry Vishernev, the First Secretary, the Vice-Consul of the Embassy and his wife Olga were brutally murdered by a terrorist on the day of the establishment of the diplomatic relations between Russia and Abkhazia on September 9, 2013. Their death became a very great loss for our Embassy, for the entire diplomatic service of Russia and our Abkhaz friends. Today is a great event for me, I always considered it necessary to perpetuate the memory of the Vishernevs` in the newly-built Embassy of the Russian Federation in Abkhazia, » stressed Semyon Grigoriev.

The Russian Ambassador in Abkhazia thanked the security forces of Abkhazia who had opened the crime with the assistance of their Russian counterparts.

Kan Taniya, the Deputy Foreign Minister of the Republic of Abkhazia also made a short greeting noting that the murder of Vishernevs` was directed against the Abkhaz-Russian interaction.

«We pay tribute to the memory of sincere, dedicated and kind people whose noble aspirations and kind-hearted actions are forever fixed in our history." The dishonest crime which claimed the lives of two remarkable people was aimed primarily at undermining fraternal relations between our states. The perpetrators of this inhuman crime will duly punished, » stressed the Deputy Minister.

The flowers were placed on the memorial plaque at the end of the event.
