Georgian products could return to Russia to the end of 2011. According to the "Georgia-News", the leader of the opposition party "Free Georgia" Kukava expressed this hope after returning from a trip to Russia where he met with the head of Rospotrebnadzor Gennady Onishchenko.
"At the meeting it was decided that in the coming period the legal and technical procedures for the return of Georgian products to the Russian market begin. In this regard, a special meeting with participation of Georgian entrepreneurs and experts will take place soon" - said Kukava to Georgian journalists.
