On June 20, 2022, a joint meeting of the Abkhazian-Russian working group on the issue of simplifying the conditions for crossing the Abkhazian-Russian state border at the Adler checkpoint (automobile, pedestrian) was held in the format of a videoconference in the Media Center of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Abkhazia.

The meeting was attended by deputies and representatives of relevant departments of the Republic of Abkhazia and the Russian Federation.

From the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Abkhazia, the consultations were attended by Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs Iraklii Tuzhba, Head of the Consular Department of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Abkhazia Lasha Avidzba and Minister Counselor of the Embassy of the Republic of Abkhazia in the Russian Federation Alkhas Barzania.

During the meeting, the main attention was paid to the discussion of technical issues and the development of comprehensive measures aimed at simplifying the crossing of the Abkhazian-Russian border at the Adler checkpoint. In particular, it was about opening an additional line at the checkpoint for sightseeing buses.

Other issues related to the simplification of the procedure for crossing the Abkhazian-Russian state border were also discussed. In particular, the possibility of using maritime and rail traffic, resuming air traffic, as well as the issue of lifting restrictions on third-country nationals previously introduced by the Russian Federation due to the COVID-19 pandemic and a number of other tasks aimed at solving problems when crossing the border.

During the conversation, both sides expressed interest in creating the most comfortable conditions for citizens of the Republic of Abkhazia and the Russian Federation when crossing the Abkhazian-Russian state border, especially in the summer.

The work of the joint Abkhazian-Russian inter-parliamentary commission to simplify the regime of crossing the state border will continue.
