Georgian defense minister is about to ban Russian beer
Georgian defense minister, Iraklii Okruashvili spoke in support to Russian beer imports.
Russian beer makes up 15% of all beer at Georgian market. Personally I would have supported the decision to ban Russian beers imports to Georgia, as it could bring more profits to Georgian companies, who produce beer of no lower quality, Okruashvili said. The defense minister was put in charge of Georgian wine exports abroad.
However, agricultural ministry officials denied any possibility of banning Russian beer exports to Georgia. Decision to ban Russian beer will only be made in case if it will be found harmful for health, the structural and economic reforms minister, Kahi Bendukidze told, Vzglyad reports.
