Air traffic between Russia and Georgia will be restored only after the campaign of Russophobia is ceased and security of Russian citizens is no longer in danger in Georgia, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Andrei Rudenko said, APA reports citing RIA Novosti.

“Talks over lifting the restrictions will be possible only after the necessary conditions are created for it. First of all: after the situation is stabilized, the Russophobia campaign is ceased and our citizens are no longer in danger in Georgia, "Rudenko said.
