Stationing of the Black Sea Fleet of the Russian Federation does not affect the development of tourism on the peninsular, tourism minister of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea Georgiy Psaryov told a press conference in Moscow.
"For Russian Crimea is close by mentality, we have the same language and traditions. And the presence of the Black Sea Fleet does not affect the development of the resort sphere," he said.
According to Psaryov, about one million Russian tourists have already visited Crimea this year.
In his turn, chairman of the tour operators Association Boris Zelensky noted that thousands of tourists come to Crimea at the end of July to see the celebration of the Black Sea Fleet Day.
According to Zalensky, tourists from the post-Soviet countries visit Sevastopol just to see war ships. "This is one of the brightest sightseeing," he summed up.
