We’re in Georgia and taking a closer look at the tense relationship with Russia. Little by little Russia is trying to pinch land from Georgia. In 2008 they did so in a war. We visit neighbours who are separated by barbed wire. Visiting the Khevsurs – who have traditionally guarded the Georgia’s borders – we see how Russia is slowly but surely moving its border posts.
