Civil Georgia, Tbilisi / 2 Oct.'06 / 15:15

Russian news agencies reported that the Ministry of Transport of the Russian Federation has announced the suspension of air, sea, railway and land traffic with Georgia.

Official from the Russian Transport Ministry cited the debts of Georgian air companies for air traffic service as a reason behind the decision.

We also have serious questions in respect to sea, land and railway traffic,” Sergey Aristov, the Russian Deputy Transport Minister, said in remarks broadcasted on Russian television.

Officials in Tbilisi say that no official notification about the decision has been received from the Russian side.
