I would like to add information that the monitoring of the river is being carried out from the very first day, although we are now talking about increasing the perimeter. We are currently monitoring a 30-kilometer perimeter, but by the end of the day, or from tomorrow morning, we will go to a 54-kilometer perimeter. This is the territory of Ambrolauri, and we will try to monitor the river bed as effectively as possible," said Mghebrishvili.
