Prime Minister Shmygal is asking government agencies to facilitate more tourist flights to Turkey

and to facilitate visits here of Turkish tourists with Covid-19 vaccination certificates. According to the government portal, the Prime Minister calls for “organizing additional flights on popular routes at weekends, as well as opening communication with new cities.” Last week, shortly after Turkish President Recep Erdoğan gave a warm welcome to President Zelenskiy in Istanbul, the Russian government banned Russian tourism to Turkey through June 1, causing half a million people to change their travel plans.
