MOSCOW, July 16. /TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin has instructed the government agencies to concentrate on the security of Russian citizens currently staying in Turkey and on the opportunities of their return home, the Kremlin press secretary Dmitry Peskov said.
"The President issued appropriate instructions to governmental agencies to focus exactly on ensuring security of the Russian citizens and on creating conditions for their return home," he told reporters.
About 4,000 Russians may be stranded at Turkey at present, Maya Lomidze, the Vice-President of the Association of Tour Operators of Russia (ATOR) has told TASS.
