Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a decree on which Russian airlines must stop flights to Georgia from 8 July. Tour operators were advised not to sell tours to this country.

The Russian government should ensure the return of citizens and their baggage to Georgia. As reported RBC Presidential Spokesman Dmitry Peskov, a ban on flights will be in effect until the political situation normalizes in Georgia. The main reason for this decision is the threat to the safety of Russian citizens.

S7 and Red Wings have already announced that flights to Georgia will stop. They stopped selling tickets. Passengers who bought tickets for flights after 8 July will be refunded.

The capital of Georgia - Tbilisi protests swept 20 June. The protesters opposed the participation of Russian delegates in the session of the Inter-Parliamentary Assembly of Orthodoxy and tried twice to seize the parliament building. The reason for the rallies was that the participant in the session - State Duma deputy from the Communist Party of the Russian Federation Sergei Gavrilov, during the opening session of the Georgian parliament, sat in the chair of the speaker. This caused fury among the radicals and the opposition. Georgian President Salome Zurabishvili said that the protests are beneficial only for Russia, because she is an enemy and occupier.
