On the morning of January 9, opposition activists gathered in front of the Abkhaz Drama Theater in Sukhumi. Soon they moved to the building of the "presidential administration" of the unrecognized republic and tried to storm it.

Participants in the rally argue that the incumbent president, Raul Khajimba, did not get the majority of votes in the last “head of the republic’s” elections and demand new elections. The "presidential administration" says this is the coup attempt.
