Criminal Police has entered the mediator firms for visa services at the Russian Interests Section. Following the journalistic investigation of the "Saturday Courier", the Ministry of Internal Affairs initiated a criminal case against fraud. The criminal police are trying to find out who the citizens pay 350 to 550 dollars.
From the morning, additional patrol police crews were mobilized at the consulate of Russia and then the head of Saburtalo police department arrived at Chavchavadze Avenue.
Regardless of the journalistic investigations and the entry of criminal police into specific mediator companies, , the line at the Russian consulate was still long and chaotic. The citizens were allowed to enter the consulate only after the "Courier" crew arrived.
