Foreign Ministry statement
We are seriously concerned over the aggravation of the internal political situation in Georgia. Our compatriots – members of the official delegation of the Russian Federation Federal Assembly that took part in the session of the Interparliamentary Assembly on Orthodoxy – were injured as a result of the actions of the radical Georgian opposition employing anti-Russian slogans. Mass disturbances continue in Tbilisi.
Therefore, the Foreign Ministry strongly recommends that Russian citizens refrain from travel to Georgia for their own personal safety.
