First passenger plane from Russia lands at Tbilisi airport since 2019


Images show a Russian passenger plane landing in Georgia for the first time since 2019, following a decision last week from Russian President Vladimir Putin to lift a flight ban. The resumption of flights has stirred protests in Georgia, as Moscow fought a brief but bloody war with Georgia and recognised two separatist territories in the north of the country as independent.
