The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Russia canceled the recommendation for Russian citizens, according to which the agency advised them to refrain from traveling to Georgia, said Maria Zakharova, the Spokesperson for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Russia.
As Zakharova mentioned, comments regarding the restoration of direct flights to Georgia will be made by the Ministry of Transport of Russia in the near future.
“The decisions taken by the President of the Russian Federation regarding the restoration of flights and the introduction of a visa-free regime for short-term travel of Georgian citizens to Russia are in accordance with our principled approach to consistently simplify communication and contacts between the citizens of Russia and Georgia despite the absence of diplomatic relations,” Zakharova noted.
The above decision was simultaneously followed by the resumption of direct flights to Georgia by Russia and the cancellation of the visa regime.
