The Minister of economy and sustainable development of Georgia Natia Turnava announced that the state will take away all of their citizens from Italy.
“I want to reassure all those of our citizens who planned to fly from Italy to Georgia on a direct flight. We are already working to arrange to deliver them back, and take care of this state. The costs associated with this will take over the state”, – said Turnava.
