Less and less Russians travel to Crimea. The number of tourists arriving in Simferopol, the largest airport on the peninsula, has fallen by 25 percent this year. - the Kommersant newspaper said on Monday, citing the Svyaznoy-Travel travel agency.

- The infrastructure on the peninsula is not at the same level as in Turkey or Egypt and many tourists who visited Crimea do not decide to return - said Andrei Osintsev, director of Svyaznoy-Travel, quoted by the newspaper.

After Russia suspends flights to Turkey and Egypt, Russian tourists prefer trips to resorts in the south of the country, such as Anapa, Gelendzhik or Sochi, which offer better conditions than those available in the Crimea. According to Svyaznoy-Travel data, the number of tourists visiting Sochi has increased by 40% this year

According to the data of the Russian travel agency Delfin, such a significant decline in demand can not be said for organized tours, the sale of which - despite a temporary slowdown - is by 40-50 percent. higher than last year.

Crimean authorities deny the peninsula's falling popularity among Russian tourists. Crimean Deputy Prime Minister Ruslan Balbek said that these figures do not reflect the real situation on the market and that they are the result of a lack of knowledge or "information attack". He also added that Crimea is one of the main destinations in Russia.
