MOSCOW, January 23. /ITAR-TASS/. Riots in Ukraine can decrease the flow of Russian tourists to Crimea, the Association of Tour Operators of Russia (ATOR) reported on Thursday.
The situation in Ukraine was serious: clashes occurred between protesters and police. Tour operators say Russian citizens do not hurry to book tours to Kiev for the spring and May holidays.
ATOR says no tours are organized due to low season. “Demand will increase not earlier than in March,” an ATOR official said, adding “Now there is no demand on any tours. If the situation does not improve, there is no demand on such tours.”
Meanwhile, the official said the situation in Kiev can have a negative impact on the summer season in Crimea. “Now accommodation facilities and their owners are sitting on the fence. They watch the situation in Kiev that is why they do not hurry to present prices. To date, not more than 50% of accommodation facilities present prices,” the official added.
