HAVANA, February 1 (Itar-Tass) — Over 130 Russian tourists who bought tours from Lanta-Tur travel company that has announced bankruptcy are stranded in Cuba, Russia’s Ambassador to Cuba Mikhail Kamynin told Russian reporters on Tuesday.
“Emergency headquarters have been set up at the embassy to solve all problems that our fellow countrymen who bought tours to Cuba from that travel agency may face,” the Russian diplomat said.
On Tuesday, the Russian ambassador discussed the situation with Cuba’s First Deputy Minister of Tourism Alexis Trujillo. “An understanding was reached that the Cuban side will do all possible to minimize problems for the Russian tourists so that they could finish their holidays and return home without hindrance,” Kamynin noted.
The embassy monitors the situation closely. Sources from the Russian Consulate General told Tass that early on Wednesday a group of about ten tourists will fly back to Russia.
Lanta-Tur Voyage, one of Russia's largest travel agencies, unexpectedly suspended its operation on January 27. The company announced bankruptcy as Master Bank denied it a credit line. As many as 2,385 Lanta’s tourists are still abroad.
Russia’s Investigations Committee opened a criminal case against Lanta’s top managers on charges of large-scale fraud.
