Abkhazians to vote for Sochi mayor

Residents of Georgia’s breakaway republic of Abkhazia with Russian citizenship may vote in the upcoming elections for mayor of the neighbouring Russian city of Sochi. Gazeta reports that a polling station for residents of Abkhazia will be opened on the Russian side of the border, in the village of Veseloye. Opposition candidates, including Boris Nemtsov of the Solidarity alliance, are amazed at the decision of the Sochi election commission. Around 90% of Abkhazians have Russian passports.
