MOSCOW, April 17 /ITAR-TASS/. Restrictions imposed on Russians entering Ukraine will impact tourism flows to that country, Executive Director of the Association of Russian Tour Operators (ATOR) Maya Lomidze told Itar-Tass on Thursday.
“It is beyond doubt that restrictions banning the entry to Ukraine for Russian nationals and Ukrainians aged from 16 to 60 and domiciled in Crimea will impact the travelling industry, although it is worth mentioning that tours to that country [Ukraine] do not enjoy practically any demand from Russians now,” she said specifying that reservations for tours of Ukraine, including the cities of Lviv and Kiev, are absolutely absent for the May holidays and even for the summer.
Earlier, the Ukrainian Border Service confirmed that the restrictions had been imposed on Russian nationals and on the Ukrainians domiciled in Crimea and aged from 16 to 60.
“These temporary restrictions will embrace all Russian nationals aged 16 to 60,” the Border Service’s press office told Itar-Tass. “Those entering Ukraine will be subjected to interviews at the border checkpoints and they will be permitted into the country upon presenting a document confirming a close relative’s death or ailment as well as a corresponding invitation from legal entities or individuals.”
Besides, the entry will be restricted for male Ukrainians aged from 16 to 60 years old who are domiciled in the Republic of Crimea and the city of Sevastopol.
