“Speaking about this ambitious goal, we must say that it will hardly be possible to solve all problems at once,” said Sarishvili, who takes part in a session of the Russian-Turkish expert group on tourism safety, currently under way in Antalya.
“There are certain transport restrictions at the moment. Railway transportation, ferry links must be organized, and a bridge must be built across the Kerch Strait,” he told ITAR-TASS.
The current task is “government subsidies to transport companies so that citizens could reach Crimea at cheap rates,” he said. “The government has adopted certain decisions that have scaled down the prices below the half-a-year ago levels. This will certainly attract Russian tourists. We would like to see it continuing for a rather long period, while in the meantime the infrastructure in Crimea will be developing,” Sarishvili said.
