Resumption of flights to Russian Federation depends on Russia, says Georgian PM

Flights to the Russian Federation were suspended not by Georgia, - Georgian Prime Minister Giorgi Gakharia said in response to the statement of Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov.

According to Gakharia, the issue of resumption of flights depends on the Russian Federation and the epidemiological situation.

"Flights to the Russian Federation were stopped not by Georgia. This depends on the Russian Federation and, of course, the epidemiological situation, both in the Russian Federation and in Georgia," - said the Prime Minister.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov expressed hope that the political dialogue between Georgia and Russia in the Karasin-Abashidze format, which was suspended due to a pandemic, will soon be resumed. At the same time, he said that Moscow is closely monitoring the situation in Tbilisi and hopes that air traffic with Georgia will be restored in the near future.
