Abkhazia, an illegal and illegitimate republic for Georgia

GEORGIA - Friday 26 August is presidential election day in Abkhazia, a break-away Georgian statelet and three candidates are standing. Apart from Russia, Abkhazia's sovereignty has only been recognized by four countries, including Venezuala and Nicaragua. For Georgia, it is an illegal and illegitimate republic. But not for Moscow. At the end of a 5 day war in 2008 Russian President Dmitry Medvedev recognized the independence of this tiny south Caucasus territory as well as that of South Ossetia. Since then, diplomatic relations between Russia and Georgia have been broken off and Moscow's influence in this strategic region has been growing. Ksenia Bolchakova, our correspondent in Russia, visited the separatist region.
