MOSCOW, June 22. /TASS/. Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov has rejected as "absurd" the recommendation of Russia’s consumer rights protection society for tourists to obtain permission from the Ukrainian authorities to come to Crimea.
"Crimea is a Russian region and that’s why raising a question by the organization you have mentioned is absolutely absurd," Peskov told reporters in comments to this initiative.
Peskov also said "the recommendation for the choice of tourist routes is not a matter of the Kremlin."
