Abazashta (Abaza: Абазашта) is the only newspaper (and mass medium in general) published in the Azabin language in the Karachay–Cherkess Republic of the Russian Federation. It is published twice a week.

Abazin texts were originally published in the Cherkess language newspaper Черкес плъыж; in 1938, the Abazin newspaper Черкес плъыж was founded, later renamed to Коммунизм алашара (Light of Communism); it received its current designation in 1991.
