    Georgians have launched renewed protests against Russia's nine-year long occupation of Georgia's breakaway regions of South Ossetia and Abkhazia.

    For over a decade, the Georgian government has been seeking closer ties with NATO in order to protect itself from Moscow's aggression.

    However, there have also been counter-protests calling for closer ties with Russia.

    Al Jazeera's Robin Forestier-Walker reports from Karapila on the Georgian-South Ossetian line of control.
