Abstract

The article analyzes the experience Georgia and Russia have accumulated in their economic relations. The author draws attention to the fact that in spite of this flare-up in Russian-Georgian relations, trade and economic contacts between Russia and Georgia have never been interrupted. The experience gained at the talks between Russia and Georgia on the former’s accession to the WTO and the positive outcome of these talks give every reason to hope that Moscow and Tbilisi can eventually find and launch real mechanisms to resolve the accrued problems.

Keywords: Russia, Georgia, Russia’s Liberal Empire, trade, WTO
