Russia is set to begin negotiations on the resumption of air connections with Georgia, Grigory Karasin, chairman of the Russian State Duma's International Affairs Committee, states.

 

“We are ready to discuss this issue and sooner or later it will be resolved,” the MP says.

 

However, he did not specify the possible terms of flights resumption.



According to the Georgian Prime Minister's Special Representative for Relations with Russia  Zurab Abashidze, no practical action has yet begun on the issue.

 

“We have not held  communication on the issue. The next meeting within the Abashidze-Karasin format will take place in September or October, and if Russia is ready to resume air communication, we are ready to discuss it, ”Abashidze said.

 

Flights  between Georgia and Russia were suspended in June 2019 amid massive protests in Tbilisi assessed as anti-Russian by Moscow.
