Marina Kosareva and Murad Gazdiev fly out of Moscow in different directions. Marina is moving to the UK to work at RT's new London office. She's delighted, as she's been waiting to relocate for years and finally all her hard work has paid off. Meanwhile, Murad is heading to Sukhumi, Abkhazia. This disputed territory has proclaimed its independence but is still not recognised by the international community as a separate state. Its citizens hope that following the election of a new president, Abkhazia's statehood will finally be recognised around the world. The election story is Murad's first assignment as a reporter and he's determined to do his very best.
RT correspondents Maria Finoshina and Murad Gazdiev report from two once beautiful cities now devastated by military conflict. Aleppo in Syria is under constant threat of jihadist invasion, while the inhabitants of Donetsk in Ukraine wait for a much-wanted ceasefire to come into force.
The fighting in Donetsk, Ukraine, is getting closer and closer to the city centre. Paula Slier goes to the site of an artillery attack to report on the casualties. Meanwhile in Moscow, broadcast journalist Ilya Petrenko gives us a tour of RT's newsroom where he works, and talks about the demands of his profession.
Maria Finoshina is on her way to the Syrian city of Aleppo. She stops en route in Lattakia, a port town which has become a refuge for many fleeing ISIS. Meanwhile in Donetsk, Ukraine, Roman Kosarev prepares his final report from the conflict zone, where he will soon be replaced by Murad Gazdiev.
In this episode, Thabang Motsei and Maria Finoshina try to overcome the absence of their significant others, whose support they need with such a difficult job. Paula Slier tries to find out what contradictions Israeli politicians have in their attitudes towards EU-Israeli relations.
Ilya Petrenko visits Moscow's Red Square for his first assignment as a correspondent. A military tattoo with participants from round the world could make for great footage. Meanwhile in Ukraine, Paula Slier comes across a burned out bus that’s been shelled right next to the town's central railway station.
RT correspondents Aleksey Yaroshevsky and Paula Slier return to two of the world’s biggest conflict zones, but this time during a calmer period. Aleksey is in post-coup Kiev, reflecting on the most violent days of the conflict. Meanwhile, Paula visits the West Bank to film the now already routine protests against the Israeli wall.
Maria Finoshina returns to Syria where war has raged for four years. On her way to Aleppo, the closest city to the ISIS stronghold of Raqqa, she stops in a small Christian village, hit hard by zealous militants. Meanwhile, Roman Kosarev monitors sick children being evacuated to Moscow from Eastern Ukraine’s Donetsk.
Paula Slier heads to a town 20 km outside Donetsk to do a report on the bombing of a chemical factory. But when her fixer refuses to come, she starts to think she may have underestimated the dangers of this task. Meanwhile, Harry Fear is in Newport, Wales, where he's covering anti-NATO protests.
Thabang Motsei is thrilled with the opportunity to take the world's longest railway journey– the Trans-Siberian but not all of her colleagues are as excited as she is about the coming trip. Meanwhile, in Moscow, Egor Piskunov shows us what he is doing back home and also takes us on tour to the newsroom.
