Samegrelo (Mengrelia)
Mingrelia:
Notable people of Samegrelo:
Geno Adamia (March 8, 1936, – September 28, 1993) was a Georgian military commander who fell in the war in Abkhazia.

A native of Sukhumi, Abkhazia, he engaged, immediately after the outbreak of the hostilities in 1992, in the struggle with the Abkhaz separatists who fought for the secession of Georgia’s autonomous republic of Abkhazia, where the Georgians constituted an ethnic majority. Adamia organized a large volunteer detachment of the citizens of Sukhumi, and was actively involved in the defense of the city against the combined Abkhaz-North Caucasian forces aided by the Russian navy and aviation. He was soon promoted Major General and appointed the commander of the 23rd Mechanized Brigade of the Ministry of Defense of Georgia. One of the most energetic and popular Georgian commanders, he refused to surrender when Sukhumi fell on September 27 1993. With a tiny force, he continued to fight in the vicinities of Sukhumi and was killed at the action at the Kelasuri Bridge on September 28.

His friends ransomed his body which was buried in Tbilisi, the capital of Georgia, in November 1993. The Georgian society, especially the IDPs from Abkhazia, marked the 70th anniversary from his birth on March 8, 2006.
