Abkhazian Presidential Election – News Team Ep.73

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.
