2012-04-13 13:46

Russian Foreign Ministry once again drew attention to the lack of security for Russian citizens in Georgia and recommends refraining from traveling to this country. According to the report on the website of the Russian FM, recently, several Russian citizens visited were detained in Georgia for visit to Abkhazia.


"Special forces of Georgia continue to systematically catch and punish the Russians entering the country. This is being done, as we see, in secret, without much publicity. On the other hand, such propaganda shows like Saakashvili's visit to the checkpoint" Kazbegi", where he has reportedly welcomed the citizens Russia, crossing the border, are widely reported in the media. Russian Foreign Ministry once again calls attention to the lack of security for our citizens in Georgia and recommends refraining from traveling to this country", said in a statement, RIA Novosti reported.

As recalled by the Information and Press Department of the Russian Foreign Ministry, earlier it was reported about the arrest of a resident of the Moscow region, Russian citizen Konstantin Rodionov, February 17 in Georgia. He arrived in Tbilisi on private business, and now he is in prison for visiting Abkhazia. "When this incident received wide publicity, the Georgian authorities initially denied the fact of lawlessness, but then thought it would be better to liberate Rodionov under the so-called "procedural agreement". In the end, a trip to "hospitable Georgia" cost him 40 days spent behind bars and $ 1,200 of fine", the department reported.

Unfortunately, this is not an isolated case.

February 27, the 2nd mate of the ship "Volga-Balt 248" (the flag of Belize), a citizen of Russia Nikolay Kruchinin was arrested in the port of Poti. He was tried on charges of "illegal" visit to Sukhum. He managed to avoid prison after paying 3000 dollars. As in the previous case, the Georgian side did not notify the section of Russian interests under the Embassy of Switzerland on the detention of a Russian citizen in violation of generally accepted international rules.

March 30, a resident of the Kostroma region Bella Vekua, suspected of visiting Abkhazia, was detained in Poti. A criminal case under the Article #322-1 of the Criminal Code of Georgia was instituted. Russian citizen is in the remand prison in the city of Zugdidi. Section of Russian interests takes the possible measures to provide consular assistance to her.
