The Doukhobors are an ethnic Russian religious community living in Russia, Caucasus and Canada. The word “Doukhobor” means “Spirit Wrestler”. Since the Doukhobors legal documents for the lease of land have been disputed by the Ninotsminda municipal administration, this community may lose all legal rights to its land, the Doukhobors’only source of income. The Doukhobors are likely to leave Gorelovka, Georgia and Russia.
