MOSCOW, September 25. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia’s Prosecutor General’s Office has initiated probes into activity of the tour industry after a series of bankruptcies among travel companies.

“The Russian Prosecutor General’s Office ordered prosecutors to secure enforcement of the laws on tourism activity and consumer rights protection,” the spokeswoman for the Prosecutor General’s Office told ITAR-TASS on Thursday.

“Over the past four years, 35 major travel companies have suspended their operations upon failing to fulfil their liabilities under the agreements concluded with customers,” Marina Gridneva said.
