The Wider Image: Musicians fleeing Russia find a new audience in Georgia
Alexei Antropov, 29, a classical double bassist from Moscow, carries his backpack as he moves to his new apartment from the hostel he was temporarily staying at in Tbilisi, Georgia, December 27, 2022. Antropov is embarking on a new life abroad, initially living in a cheap hostel on the outskirts of Tbilisi before moving into an apartment with a friend and holding down a modest job and hopes to buy a property in Tbilisi one day. "I need a home - a place where I can come back. And I hope Tbilisi will become such a home for me. It is a beautiful city." REUTERS/Maxim Shemetov SEARCH "SHEMETOV GEORGIA MUSICIANS" FOR THIS STORY.
