The geologists have released an interim report on the causes of the landslide in the Dariali Gorge, which has killed about eight people and destroyed the central highway connecting Georgia with Russia. The geologists have concluded that the landslide and mudslide was caused by natural factors and no technical works at a hydro electric power plant could have affected the firmness of the mountains there, therefore it could not have been prevented. The experts have been exploring the disaster area during the past two days. They say the Devdoraki ravine is a dangerous seismological area, adding the destructive landslide occurred there in 2007 too. The Green Alternative NGO disagrees with the Ministry of Environment and Natural Resources and says they have addressed them several times warning that the exploration works around the Dariali power plant construction were not properly conducted and the assertions that the disaster could not be prevented are groundless.
