The Upper Larsi customs checkpoint - the only direct border between Georgia and Russia - has expanded its capacity, allowing for ease of transit for Armenians wishing to reach Russia over land.

The checkpoint can serve 7,000 people per day in both directions, as well as up to 50 buses and 900 cars.
