He reported that "specific instructions were already given to various 'power' ministers who started implementing them." The premier indicated that under instructions of the Georgian president "special means of control was established over air, marine traffic in the direction of Adzharia, as well as the customs control." According to Zurab Zhvania, "those measures were taken in order to prevent large amounts of armaments entering the territory of Adzharia as happened in the recent period."
