Aitaira (Abkhaz: Аиҭаира, Georgian: აითაირა; lit. Revival) is a socio-political movement in Abkhazia. It is headed by current Vice-Premier Leonid Lakerbaia.[1]

Aitaira backed the current Prime Minister of Abkhazia Alexander Ankvab in the 2004 presidential election, but upon his exclusion from the race by the Central Election Commission, Aitaira joined United Abkhazia and Amtsakhara in supporting Sergei Bagapsh. After the crisis that followed the election Bagapsh became President of Abkhazia in the 2005 compromise election, and Ankvab subsequently became Prime Minister.[2]
