Russia Plans to Construct Airport in S.Ossetia

Georgia Russia

TBILISI (Civil Georgia)–Experts from Russia’s Design Institute have studied South Ossetia’s landscape to select an area for construction of an airport, the breakaway region’s envoy to Moscow, Dmitry Medoev, told Russia’s online news agency, Regnum.

He said that an exact location of the planned airport has yet to be decided.

Regnum, however, reported, quoting its “sources” that a military airfield, not a civilian airport was planned to construct in the area of Achabeti and Kekhvi, two villages which were populated mainly by the ethnic Georgians and controlled by the Georgian authorities before the August war.
