EU regrets Georgia’s decision to resume flights with Russia

The European Union has condemned Georgia for resuming direct flights with Russia. EU foreign service spokesman Peter Stano said Tbilisi’s move “raises fears for Georgia’s European path” and that its foreign policy is becoming increasingly incompatible with Brussels.

“The latest decision by the Georgian authorities is worrying given Georgia’s path towards the EU and Georgia’s obligations to align with EU foreign policy decisions as stipulated by the Association Agreement Georgia-EU. We regret Georgia’s decision to resume flights to and from Russia following Russia’s decision to lift the ban on air travel. The EU and a number of partners have imposed sanctions against the Russian aviation sector, we do not allow flights to, from and over Russia,” Stano said.

On May 10, Vladimir Putin lifted the ban on direct flights to Georgia and on visas for its citizens. Direct flights from Russia to Georgia will begin on May 17.
