MOSCOW, April 16 (Itar-Tass) – No organized tourist groups from Russia were staying in Boston at the moment of the bomb explosions, Executive Director of the Russian Association of Tourist Operators Maya Lomidze told Itar-Tass on Tuesday.
“We polled all leading tourist operators and found out that that no organized tourist groups from Russia are staying in Boston. There is also no information that someone was going to visit the city soon. At the present moment we have this information, therefore, we do not say about the annulment of the tourist tours,” she noted.
In the words of Lomidze, the Russians usually have a low interest in Boston for sightseeing tours. “Some tourist groups, which arrive to visit New York, go there, if they want to, in order to visit the university campuses. Other category is those people, who arrive with their children to receive education for them in the city. There is none of both categories of Russian citizens in the city now. But, I note that I mean only organized tourism,” she explained.
