President Vladimir Putin said in a direct line that the prices for domestic tourism are overstated due to closed borders.
“As for the fact that prices are too high – yes, this, apparently, is also happening. What is the reason for this today? Many countries, despite the fact that someone is opening, are nevertheless closed, ”said Mr Putin.
According to him, this leads to an overload of the Russian tourist infrastructure, primarily in the south of the country – in the Krasnodar Territory, in the Crimea. “As soon as offers do not cope with demand, prices immediately follow – this happens in the entire market economy,” the president said.
