Georgian Prime Minister Irakli Garibashvili said he considers it pointless to ban air traffic with Russia or criticize its resumption, TASS reports.

“Every day, a thousand cars cross the line. Upper Lars checkpoint,” — quoted Garibashvili's agency.

He noted that “including passengers, cargo and thousands of cars” are crossing the land border.

And he added: “and what's the difference, I don't understand, so let's close it.”

Earlier, President Vladimir Putin described the reaction in Georgia to his decision to cancel visas and resume direct flights between the countries as completely unexpected.

“I thought everything , what they will say, well, thank you, that's good,” Putin said during a meeting with representatives of Delovaya Rossiya. – No, there was some completely incomprehensible storm about this (in Georgia).

Putin said: “I look from the side, I think: are they completely crazy or what? It is not clear what is happening there.”
