SOCHI, October 4. /TASS/. Moscow will resume flights to Georgia after it is clear that Tbilisi’s hostile policy against Russia is a thing of the past, Kremlin Spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters on Friday.
"[The flights resumption can be expected] when it is obvious that there is no more return to aggression," Peskov said.
The Kremlin spokesman noted that Moscow saw the first positive signals, namely the recent meeting in New York between the Russian and Georgian foreign ministers.
"Now we just need to be patient and find the right moment for resuming flights," Peskov said.
Russia banned flights to Georgia in the wake of a June 20 rally in Tbilisi against Russia’s foreign policy, which escalated into clashes with police. The next day, Russian President Vladimir Putin issued a decree, banning Russian airlines from performing flights to Georgia starting from July 8. The flights to Russia operated by Georgian air carriers were also banned.
