The Georgian Finance Ministry calls widespread information that Russian oil, which appears to be under sanctions, is being brought into Georgia by rail a lie.

According to the statement issued by the agency, Georgia strictly abides by the procedures of international sanctions and there are no facts or evidence to prove the accusation.

"The Ministry of Finance of Georgia responds to the March 25 story produced by the television station Formula and explains the following: "The opinion expressed by the journalist in the piece - in particular, the quote: "The documents have been presented which confirm that sub-sanctioned Russian oil is transported to Georgia by rail" - is a complete lie and misinformation.

We publicly and categorically state that Georgia firmly adheres to international sanctions procedures, and there are no facts or evidence to support the above-mentioned accusation.

In order to provide the public with objective information, we immediately clarify that a check conducted by the Revenue Service confirmed that international sanctions do not apply to the company mentioned in the story (Zed Oil Company), the cargo and its owners (information is available in open sources). Based on the above, after completing customs control procedures, the shipment was placed under import procedures in accordance with the law.

The Ministry once again urges everyone to refrain from spreading unverified and false information. Any information related to the implementation of the sanctions should be checked with the appropriate agency responsible for the implementation of the sanctions - the Revenue Service of the Ministry of Finance of Georgia, which, unfortunately, was not done by the aforementioned media outlet," reads the statement.
