Aslan Bzhania: Product worth billions of rubles are exported to Georgia, money goes to the pockets of contrabandists

“Product worth billions of rubles are exported from Abkhazia to Georgia and the money goes to the pockets of contrabandists,” Aslan Bzhania, the de facto President of occupied Abkhazia said.

The de facto president noted that “based on the Customs Committee and the Ministry of Agriculture, Abkhazia receives 11-12 tonnes of hazelnuts annually, about 10 per cent of the harvest are imported to Russia and the rest to Georgia. Then all this money goes into the pockets of the smugglers.”

For that reason, Aslan Bzhania thinks “the border should be under full control.”
