Following the civil unrest in Tbilisi, on 6 January 1992, President Gamsakhurdia, with other members of his government, was forced to flee first to Armenia and then to Chechnya, where he led a form of government-in-exile for the next 18 months.
Within several days of the fighting, the main boulevard in the city, Rustaveli Avenue, was destroyed and at least 113 people were killed.
