Russians in georgia: political turbulence as thousands flee war

Al Jazeera English published this video item, entitled “Russians in Georgia: Political turbulence as thousands flee war” – below is their description.

A massive influx of Russians entering Georgia has become a political problem for the government that is being heavily criticised for allowing such large numbers to cross.
