Number of visitors from Russia increased by 40-45%, 60% exit Georgia. Such a statement made today the Minister of Internal Affairs.
“As for the entry of 250,000 people, we are probably talking about Russian citizens, this is wrong and false. Not so many people entered and I don’t know where you get these numbers from. About 4-5 days ago, there were 5,000-6,000 visitors.
Now it has increased to about 10 000, it has increased by 40-45%, and there are not 250 000 people, nor 2 million, who is telling you this and where do they get it? For example, the day before yesterday there were 11,200 people, last night less than 10,000. It’s not 100,000 and 200,000 people.
About 60% exit the country. In the summer, there were tourists, not people who came for any other purpose. In our opinion, they avoid military service”, - said Vakhtang Gomelauri.
