Traffic between Turkey, Georgia and Russia will start this year, – Vladimir Padalko, vice-president of the Russian Chamber of Commerce and Industry, announced after the meeting of the Russian-Georgian Business Council. According to him, the meeting also discussed the issues of restoring railway traffic between Georgia and Russia and reducing the prices of Russia-Georgia air tickets. TASS reports the information.
“We talked about Turkey-Georgia-Russia ferry services in the maritime sphere. “A ferry designed for 150 vehicles and 300 passengers will be put into operation, which will operate almost throughout the year,” said Padalko, adding that the issue of railway communication between Georgia and Russia was also discussed at the meeting.
“If we manage to restore the railway connection, will it be through the new routes offered by Ingushetia, or will we restore the old route through Abkhazia?” This will be a turning point,” he said.
He also noted that an appeal was sent to airline companies about the reduction of the prices of Russia-Georgia and Georgia-Russia air tickets.
