MOSCOW, January 30. /ITAR-TASS/. Ukraine’s Crimea, a popular vacation destination for Russian tourists, was not affected by tensions, the head of the Russian Federal Tourism Agency (Rostourism), Alexander Radkov, told a news conference on Thursday.
“Russia's Foreign Ministry has imposed no restrictions on our tourists’ travel to Ukraine so far,” he said. “Let’s see how the situation in the country develops, but the events in Kiev have not affected the territory of Crimea.”
“If we disengage ourselves from Ukraine, we can say that in any case when a country is embraced by tensions, its tourism image is damaged. Let’s hope that this will not happen,” Radkov said. “Our tourists go and will go to Crimea. We need to emphasize another moment - we need to resolve the issue of insurance, as not all Russians arriving in Crimea get an insurance coverage."
