Two major Georgian carriers plan to sue Russia for damages following the country's suspension of air links with its South Caucasus neighbor
Two major Georgian carriers plan to sue Russia for damages following the country's suspension of air links with its South Caucasus neighbor. Russia imposed a transportation and postal blockade on Georgia October 3, apparently in retaliation for the detention of four Russian army officers on espionage charges. Georgy Kodua, chief executive of the Georgian National Airlines, said Tuesday that his company and fellow carrier Airzena will seek assistance from the International Civil Aviation Organization to make Russia compensate them for losses incurred as a result of the sanctions, which have remained in effect despite the officers' release and deportation a week ago. Kodua said that once they secure ICAO support, the two airlines will lodge a lawsuit with a Russian court of justice and then, probably, with the European Court for Human Rights as well. "We doubt a Russian court will grant our suit, and are therefore... preparing to file a suit with the European Court for Human Rights in Strasbourg," he said.
