MOSCOW, March 04. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia’s Association of Tour Operators ATOR plans to create a situation center, which will be responsible for informing tourists on the real situation in Ukraine's Crimean autonomy and organizing comfortable conditions for holidaymakers at local resorts, the association's vice-president Ilya Umanskiy told the meeting at Russia’s Ministry of Culture on Tuesday.

Umanskiy stressed that the Crimean hotel owners and tour operators were ready to slash prices 50 percent in order to bring the flow of Russian tourists to its normal rate.

“We expect the same attitude from Russian transportation providers. We have agreed with the tour operators on our offers to the Crimea, and we are ready to transfer the Russians there, if their security is guaranteed”, he said.

The official added that the tourists were calling the operators by phone, making inquiries about the situation in the Crimea and whether it was safe enough for holiday making.

"Most of them, however, prefer to wait till the situation calms down, so they can peacefully travel to their favorite resorts”, Umanskiy concluded.
