Kremlin: direct flight suspension is not ban on travelling to Georgia
There are no plans to completely ban Russians from flying to Georgia, but the state seeks to guarantee the safety of its citizens, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said.
"It’s impossible to say that people will completely stop traveling to Georgia, and it’s impossible to ban people from travelling to Georgia, no one is going to do this," TASS cited him as saying.
The Kremlin spokesman explained that the state can “only recommend citizens take heed of the threats to their personal safety that may arise in Georgia at this time”. In addition, according to Peskov, "measures can be taken to reduce the tourist flow in the interests of ensuring the safety of our citizens."
