MOSCOW, July 7. /TASS/. Russian seaside resorts, including the ones in the Krasnodar territory and the Republic of Crimea will not suffer from the reopening of Turkey as a destination for Russian holidaymakers, Oleg Safonov, the director of the Federal Agency for Tourism (Rostourism) told reporters on Thursday.
"I think there won’t be any problems or complications for internal tourism after the reopening of Turkey," he said. "What’s more, I like to recall the tendency towards the growth of internal tourist flows emerged back in 2014 when Turkey was open for tourists. Before that (the ban on Russian citizens’ traveling to Turkey - TASS) tourism had been developing at a fair pace both in Crimea and in Sochi."
On June 30, President Vladimir Putin signed a decree lifting an earlier ban on sales of tours to Turkey to Russian holidaymakers and instructed the government to take the measures towards lifting a ban on chartered flights between Russia and Turkey.
The decree on sanctions against Turkey was signed on November 28, 2015, after a fighter jet of the Turkish Air Force had brought down a Russian Sukhoi-24 bomber in Syrian airspace close to the Syrian-Turkish border.
