Do we need a separate "в" before each location, or is one at the beginning acceptable? In English one could say "Is Anna in America or Germany" rather than "Is Anna in America or in Germany."

Германия (в Германии), Россия (в России), Колумбия (в Колумбии). «˜–ия» changes into «в –ии» (prep. case).
