The Russian Foreign Ministry announced the temporary nature of the ban on flights with Georgia and called conditions for the lifting of restrictions. This is stated in the answers to media questions published by the press service of the Foreign Ministry.

Direct flights between Georgia and Russia have been suspended since July 8, 2019 by the decision of Russian President Vladimir Putin amid protests in Tbilisi caused by the arrival of Russian communist deputy Sergei Gavrilov in Georgia.

"We have repeatedly outlined the conditions for its cancellation. They are well known to the Georgian side. We are talking about the stabilization of the situation in Georgia, the cessation of the Russophobic campaign and the disappearance of threats to the security of our citizens. We also cannot ignore the sanitary and epidemiological situation," the statement said.

The ministry stressed that Russia was forced to take such measures, "reacting to the well-known provocation of Georgian radicals." At the same time, Moscow emphasizes that they remain committed to "the goals of normalizing Russian-Georgian relations, overcoming existing differences, restoring and developing bilateral ties."

"All this meets the interests of the peoples of our two countries. However, such a process should be a two-way street. We very much hope that the Georgian authorities will learn lessons from the past and will pursue a more balanced policy towards Russia," the Foreign Ministry added.
