According to Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Grigory Karasin, Moscow still does not refuse to abolish visas for Georgian citizens.
"The Russian political leadership has been considering the abolition of visa regime with Georgia. I think that Tbilisi's real steps aimed at normalization of relations with our country will help return of the visa issue to the bilateral agenda," - Karasin said.
Speaking of the renewal of flights, Karasin said: "I would like to believe that common sense will prevail in Tbilisi. The terms have been clearly established: stabilization of the situation in Georgia, termination of the Russia-phobic campaign and elimination of any threat for our country's citizens. This is a completely justified and adequate reaction," Grigory Karasin said in an interview with Izvestia.
