The parliament in Russia on Tuesday unknowingly supported a resolution aiding the government to introduce rigid economic penalty on the state of Georgia over what it termed as the country’s worst behavior towards Moscow.

Few weeks ago, Russia has negatively spoken the about anti-Russian protests which occurred in Georgia, and on Monday it condemned an obscenity-laden tirade against the Russian president on a Georgian TV station, calling it an unacceptable provocation by radical political forces in the ex-Soviet republic.

The Kremlin has swiftly responded to events by calling off passenger flights between both countries, a plan that threatens to hurt Georgia’s tourist industry since more than 1 million Russians visit each year.

Russia’s lower house of parliament, the Duma, said on Tuesday it wanted Moscow to go further and recommended the government impose economic sanctions on Tbilisi.

Vyacheslav Volodin, the chairman of the Duma, said parliamentarians wanted Moscow to ban the import of Georgian wine and mineral water and halt financial remittances by Georgian citizens working in Russia.
