Russia restores air links with Georgia

Russia will resume air links with Georgia on March 25, according to a source in the Russian Transport Ministry.

Moscow insists the decision is due to the settling of Georgia's debts for air navigation in Russia's air space.

In September 2006, following a crisis in Moscow-Tbilisi relations, Russia imposed a transport blockade of Georgia.

The crisis was sparked by the arrest in the Georgian capital, Tbilisi, of Russian soldiers.
