Georgian importers have resumed negotiations with Russia on wheat supplies.

This became possible after Russia abolished the restrictions on the export of this product.

The head of the Georgian Wheat Growers Association Levan Silagava told media that the agreement on the import of 30,000 tons of wheat has been formalized with Russia since July.

The first ship with Russian wheat has already entered the port of Poti.
