How the Ukrainian war is forcing the South Caucasus nation of Georgia to choose between West and East.

Georgia has a long and troubled relationship with its giant neighbour Russia, which the war in Ukraine has not made any easier.

In this episode of People & Power, we find out why Georgia’s future may include some tough decisions, but also some big opportunities.
