Since July 8 in Russia, a ban on air traffic with Georgia has entered. Russian airlines are no longer allowed to fly there, flights are also closed to Georgian carriers.

Now it will be possible to get to Georgia only through neighboring states. On the eve of Moscow, the last plane departed from Moscow to Tbilisi, the flight was completed by Aeroflot. The Ural Airlines and S7 flew the last from Georgia.

In June, Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a decree according to which Russian airlines from July 8 should stop flying to Georgia. The ban will be in effect until the political situation normalizes in Georgia. There were protest actions after the State Duma deputy from the Communist Party 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. However, later she said that tourists from Russia should be able to continue visit Georgiaif they love this country. Georgian Prime Minister Mamuka Bakhtadze later declared that Georgia and Tbilisi safe for tourists, including from Russia. A proposal to launch from the airports of Baku, Yerevan and Turkish Trabzon is now being considered. free buses to Georgia for Russian tourists.
