Embassy of Georgia in different countries started to invite foreigners to spend holidays in the Republic after it became known about the upcoming termination of air communication with Russia. This drew the attention of TASS.
Such a call is placed, in particular, on the official website of the Embassy of Georgia in USA to Facebook. “Come and experience Georgia,” — says the publication. Also the video from the National tourism administration of Georgia published on the website of the diplomatic mission in Denmark.
20 June in Tbilisi began mass protests that ended in clashes with police. Against the background of these developments, President Vladimir Putin has banned Russian airlines from July 8 carry passengers in this country, and later Moscow decided that Russia will not be able to fly the Georgian carriers.
The President of Georgia Salome Zurabishvili said that the Russian tourists should refrain from traveling to the country. She believes that the aggravation of the situation in Tbilisi should have no impact on tourists and the local population. The President noted that the tension in relations with Russia is old, but this did not prevent half a million Russians to visit the country.
