Hello, youth! I’m Dato Gabelia I have lived in Salzburg for a very long time, I studied medicine in Austria. I miss Mingrelia and Abkhazia very much.
Bertha von Suttner became an independent person in Mingrelia.
To make matters worse, I also became a self-employed person in Mingrelia and a doctor in Austria. I also wish you much success. Be cool!”
