MOSCOW, May 22 /TASS/. A Russian federal service in charge of protecting consumers’ rights known as Rospotrebnadzor has carried out more than 1,700 extraordinary inspections of Russian travel companies on recommendation from the Russian Tourism Agency (Rostourism). The purpose of all those checks was to stop the sale of tours, which include visits to Turkey, to Russian travelers, the agency reported on its website on Sunday.

"In a period from December 2015 to May, 2016, Rospotrebnadzor has carried out more than 1,700 extraordinary inspections; opened more than 160 cases in connection with administrative violations and compiled 240 protocols on administrative offences," the Rostourism report said.

Rospotrebnadzor continues supervising the issue, including offers of tourist trips to Turkey which tourism firms post on their websites.

The Russian Foreign Ministry recommended all Russians to refrain from trips to Turkey for security reasons on November 24, 2015. Rostourism, in turn, recommended Russian tourism operators to suspend the sale of tours to Turkey and stop sending tourists to that country directly or via third countries. Russia’s leading tourism companies agreed with the recommendations.
