    Maria Lipman March 6, 2014 ABC

    Maria Lipman September 27, 2013 euronews

    Coup d’Etat in Abkhazia Without Russia’s Permission
    Alexey Malashenko June 19, 2014

    The coup d’état in Abkhazia attracted virtually no media attention in Russia, and even less attention was paid to the parliamentary election in South Ossetia.

    A Bellwether of Palestinian Politics
    Hassan Obaid June 10, 2014 عربي

    Judging by recent student council elections in the West Bank, Fatah can expect a narrow lead in the upcoming national elections, as long as voter turnout doesn’t increase, which would play in Hamas’s favor.
