You're right that adjika is of Georgian and Abkhazian origin -- the article as well as the recipe headnote did note that this delicious salsa is not a Russian dish. However, Georgian cuisine is so brilliant that the Russians have adopted many of its dishes, especially in Sochi, which is so close to Georgia. You might be interested to know that way back in 1990 Eating Well published a celebration of Georgian food in its very first issue. If readers want to learn even more about Georgia's exciting cuisine, take a look at The Georgian Feast: The Vibrant Culture and Savory Food of the Republic of Georgia.

Please correct the mistake here. Ajika is a traditional Georgian Salsa, it is a specialty of Samegrelo, one of the oldest Georgian region. Just because a vast majority of the Russians enjoy the Georgian cuisine it does not make it Russian.
This issue is of a very political matter for the already deeply struggling Georgia-Russian dispute.
Please look into the issue and hopefully you will be able to take this down or give the correct country the credit that is due.

Thank you
