State Duma Supports Economic Sanctions against Georgia

Russian State Duma has supported the imposition of restrictions on Georgian goods.

Today, July 9, the State Duma of the Russian Federation discussed the possible imposition of additional economic restrictions to Georgia amid the “anti-Russian provocations in the country”, which according to the members of Duma, lead to the further degradation of the Russian-Georgian relations. 

The Russian State Duma adopted the proposal at the plenary session today, recommending the government to discuss the expediency of imposing special economic measures against Georgia and submit the relevant proposals to the Russian president.

The document prepared by the Duma's CIS Issues Committee implies a prohibition of imports of certain goods from Georgia, namely wine and mineral water, as well as suspension of financial transfers from Russia to Georgia.
