The Wider Image: Bordering Georgia's breakaway regions, villagers fear Russia's next steps 
Shepherd Jumber Psitidze, 64, wears an 'SOS watch' GPS tracker, as he poses for a photograph in the village of Akhalubani, Georgia, July 12, 2021. Psitidze, who lives close to the de facto border of Georgia's breakaway region of South Ossetia, was given the tracker by Georgian "anti-occupation" activist David Katsarava, the leader of the group 'Power is in Unity'. The GPS trackers handed out to residents have an 'SOS' button that they can push to prove their location when they are seized. Katsarava believes their activism has helped reduce the number of border kidnappings by 30 to 40 percent. "I feel protected wearing this watch," Psitidze said. "Whoever has these watches, there was not one case of kidnapping. As if the Russians know that we are wearing it. I know that they know, they are not stupid."
