MOSCOW, July 1 (Itar-Tass) - Protest actions do not affect resort areas in Egypt where about 60,000 Russian tourists rest, the Association of Tour Operators of Russia reported on Monday.
The situation is calm and local hotels work as usual, ATOR said.
At the moment about 60,000 tourists from Russia stay in resort areas of Egypt, ATOR said.
The protest action timed to the anniversary of the Egyptian president’s inauguration “was planned in advance. Its purpose is to solve internal problems of the country. The situation in the resorts areas is calm and hotels work as usual,” an official of one of the leading tour operators said.
In addition, the protest actions have no impact on Russian tourists’ decision to go to Egypt: they do not give up tours and know about protest actions from mass media.
The Russian Foreign Ministry and the Federal Agency for Tourism (Rostourism) recommended Russian citizens not to leave the resort areas and avoid crowded places.
