Heavy rains that have been pouring for two weeks have caused landslides that damaged the foundation of the fortress. The walls of Bebrestsikhe fractured, while the northern wall fell down.

The site has been visited by representatives of the Monuments Protection Agency including Dead of the agency Nikolai Vacheishvili who underlined that the fortress of Bebrestsikhe is in an utterly bad condition.

It was decided to start preserving the remaining walls of the monument and reconstruct the damaged part as soon as the rains cease.
