Russia in recent weeks has complained about anti-Russian protests in Georgia and on Monday condemned an obscenity-laden tirade against President Vladimir Putin on a Georgian TV station, calling it an unacceptable provocation by radical political forces in the ex-Soviet republic.

The Kremlin has already responded to events by suspending passenger flights between the two countries, a move that threatens to hurt Georgia’s tourist industry since over 1 million Russians visit each year.
