MOSCOW, December 03, 22:51 /ITAR-TASS/. Russia’s Federal Tourism Agency has received no complaints from Russian tourists staying in Kiev over mass protests actions, the agency’s press secretary Irina Shchegolkova told Itar-Tass on Tuesday.
“Russians who are currently staying in Kiev have no problems,” she said. “We have received no complaints. Travel operators say that the situation in the Ukrainian capital has provoked no reaction from tourists. They keep on going there. No one has cancelled his or her trip.”
“There are not so many Russia tourists in Kiev at the moment,” she noted. “As a rule, trips to Ukraine enjoy high demand in the period of New Year vacations.”
The Russian Association of Travel Operators also confirmed that Russians were not cancelling their New Year trips to Ukraine. “We have received no information about trip cancellation, neither do we have requests from agencies about the situation in Kiev,” a representative from the Russian Association of Travel Operators. “Moreover, there is no reaction to these developments: tourists go on booking New Year trips.” People hope that the situation in Kiev would stabilize in the time span before the New Year.
