TBILISI, January 10. /TASS/. Georgia’s border police evacuated over 100 nationals of Georgia, Armenia, Russia and other countries from the northern part of Kazbeg district on Saturday, the local authorities said.
Helicopters delivered the people to the resort of Gudauri as powerful snowfalls still hamper clearing the Georgian Military Road, a major route through the Caucasian Mountains from Georgia to Russia, covered by two-meter-high snow in that area. Most of the rescued continued their journey to the capital Tbilisi.
A heavy fog had made it impossible to use helicopters for evacuation until Saturday.
Traffic has been restricted on that section of the road since January 6 along with movements across the Georgian Daryali and the Russian Verkhny Lars border checkpoints due to snowfalls and a fog.
