The Occupational Government of the Crimea Acknowledged: There Are No Tourists. As Usual, Ukraine Is to Blame

The Occupational Government of the Crimea Acknowledged: There Are No Tourists. As Usual, Ukraine Is to Blame

 

The so-called acting head of the Crimea Sergey Aksionov admitted that the tourist flow to the peninsula is much lower than “the optimal level.” The head of the occupational government of the Crimea reported this to the Prime Minister of the Russian Federation Dmitry Medvedev. According to Aksionov, the Crimea occupied by Russia, can accept 16-20 thousand tourists daily on various modes of transportation, while the optimal tourist flow has to be several times bigger than the current one.

“We have enough power to accept arrivals so far, between 16 and 20 thousand passengers daily, or at least twice as much if necessary,” reported Aksionov to the Moscow protectors.

According to the head of the Crimean separatists, the issue of logistics and delivery of tourists to the peninsula is “a major one,” as the main mode of transportation for the arrival of the holidaymakers is the railway, using which up to 80% of the tourists used to come – is, as he says, cut off by the Ukrainian side, which cannot agree on routes.

Aksionov also admitted that the holiday bases are not ready to admit tourists. “The nationalised state medical centres are not presented as a ready product, in order to salvage the Crimea’s reputation and not to deceive the tourists,” concluded the main Crimean separatist. On his part, the Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev promised yet once more that the Moscow government will be seeking solutions to the problem of tourist delivery. “We have to search for additional possibilities to deliver the holidaymakers by railway, sea and aviation tranport,” noted Medvedev.
