The Georgian population in country side is 3.5 million inhabitants and 1.5 million people are in immigration in other countries because of bad economic situation in 1990 years when people start to leave our country and they went in Europe and in Asia, our country left Soviet Union in 1990 year and we start to get independent, then the Russia occupation our 23% of territories and make us economic creases and people went in Europe - Asia to find work.
