MOSCOW, January 15 (Itar-Tass) — Russia’s federal travel agency Rostourism has recommended Russian tourists to abstain from visiting Mali.
According to a statement placed on the agency’s website, “on December 14 Russia’s Foreign Ministry warned of a sharply aggravating situation in Mali.”
“The Russian embassy in Bamako said Russians staying in Mali were not injured,” the statement read. “Over the aggravating political situation in that country Russia’s Foreign Ministry and Rostourism insistently recommend Russian citizens to temporarily abstain from travels to that country.”
Moscow denounces actions of Mali’s extremists and separatists who provoked aggravation of tensions in the region. It also expresses the hope that during the military operation to restore the territorial integrity of Mali human rights and freedoms will be steadily observed and the operation itself will be carried out in strict compliance with UN Security Council Resolution 2085.
