Hundreds of millions of dollars: Georgia estimates the true damage from the loss of Russian tourists

No matter how trying to radiate optimism, the Georgian opposition, which staged riots in Tbilisi in June under anti-Russian slogans, the Georgian economy suffered significant losses from the absence of Russian tourists.




The Prime Minister of Georgia, Mamuka Bakhtadze, said that as a result of the termination of Russian travel, the country's tourism sector lost $ 60 million.

The figure voiced by Bakhtadze is not small in itself. However, the former speaker of the Georgian parliament, Nino Burjanadze, said that the authorities were “modest” and, to smooth over the negative, underestimated the real amount of damage tens of times.

According to her, the absence of tourists from Russia in the high season cost Georgia $ 700 million in losses. At the same time, the director of the Turpomosch association, Alexander Osaulenko, notes that in August the losses of the Georgian tourism sector will increase by another ten percent.

The disruption of the holiday season in Georgia is confirmed even by the Ukrainians against Russia, who visited Georgia.

So, a traveler from Dneprodzerzhinsk (now Kamenskoye), Sergey Glyanenko, writes on his Facebook page that, according to locals, the beach season in Georgia was ripped off "by that garbage that was in Tbilisi" and accompanies its notes with a photograph of empty Georgian cafes .

      At the same time, Belarus does not forget to constantly complain about the Russian Federation.
      You yourself are a parasite on us, as in the USSR. Drive us Belarusian apples, herring, shrimp, now chase your blood tanning in 404 ...
      And if not for the Russian Federation, you would have been devoured long ago. They would drive the USA AUG to the ocean coast of Belarus and ... yeah!
      Anyway, Psaki promised.

        And by psaki.
        But she did not promise. He promised a Russian commentator, who, like, brought such a translation.
        By the way, this is a great example of how to easily manage a sect, believers in TV wink

    Well, nothing, but frolic. And then something went wrong.
    Probably because the pots were not put on.

    - Ukropovtsy won again ... - they got all the attentive service and at the most sparing price ... - Dill doesn’t do weather anywhere, but knows how to use it everywhere ...
    Now, if the Russian tourists ignored Georgia again next year, then it would have been tangible for her, and so - the damage is insignificant; and there’s still a "velvet season"; Yes, and wine, and their mineral water - Georgia - is supplied to Russia; Yes, and no mass rallies and rallies in Georgia (under the slogan "Bring us back Russian tourists !!!") ... - so everything is not so tragic ...
    Georgians themselves are ready to immediately strike and hold mass rallies for any reason, and even against Russians and even more so ... - so the Georgians feel no guilt for themselves, no remorse (no one in Georgia tears his hair out of despair ... -Hahah ) and they are not going to "be educated" ...
    As for Russian tourists; so during the winter everything will be “forgotten" (as always) and by the next summer Russia will once again put in Georgia a whole army of its tourists ... is a vivid burning example of the “tourist Turkish gambit” in front of everyone’s eyes (today in Turkey you can’t get crowded with Russian tourists ... - something about 5 million) ... - The same thing will happen again in Georgia tomorrow ...

    All anti-Russian unrest in Georgia is beneficial primarily to the Turks. It was to them that tourists left instead of Georgia. So, with a quiet glanders, the Turks again take away the devastating Georgia, buying up there land, hotels, plots of land. Once Russia saved the Georgians from the Turks. Whether she will do it again is a big question.
