MOSCOW, July 4 (Itar-Tass) - Recent protest actions in Turkey have no impact on the tourist flow from Russia, Turkish Ambassador in Moscow Aydin Sezgin said.
Speaking at a press conference on July 3, Sezgin said, “The recent events in Istanbul had no impact on Russian tourists’ intention to have the rest in Turkey.”
The number of Russian tourists, who visited Antalya in May-June, increased by 11-12 percent as compared with the same period of last year, the ambassador said.
“Russian tourists can speak the native language with local authorities by calling the hotline.” “In addition, first aid services have become free for Russian citizens,” Sezgin stressed.
He said most Russian citizens bought immovable estate on the Mediterranean coast of Turkey and did business in the country. “Russians ranked second among tourists, who have the rest in Turkey,” he added.
