Cancel reservations and evict: harassment of Russians began in Turkey


Relations between Russia and Turkey are complex and multifaceted. On the one hand, Turkey is a NATO member and a state seeking to join the European Union, and pro-Turkish forces in Syria oppose Russian-backed President Assad. On the other hand, the countries are linked by a long-term partnership: bilateral trade, tourism, cooperation in the energy sector.


Until recently, Turkey avoided openly hostile actions towards Russia, but Western countries decided that this could not continue. TUI, Europe's largest tour operator, has instructed its Turkish subsidiary, travel agency Tantur, to cancel hotel reservations made by Russian tourists. In addition, in a letter sent by the head office to the Turkish representative office, it is indicated that all tourists from the Russian Federation must be evicted from Turkish hotels by May 31, 2022.

Such a decision is associated with numerous protests and threats from the Baltic countries, whose citizens also rest in Turkey. TUI received many complaints about the inadmissibility of the neighborhood of Europeans and Russians in Turkish hotels. Judging by the letter, the leaders of the European tour operator decided to sacrifice the profits of Turkish hotels received from the Russians.

However, TUI is just the tip of the iceberg, according to Turprom, hotel owners in Turkey received threatening letters and experienced constant pressure from Europeans who did not want to relax in the same place with Russian tourists.

How the Turkish leadership will behave in such conditions is still unclear. It is worth recalling that earlier the head of the Federal Tourism Agency and the Minister of Tourism of Turkey agreed to resume charter flights from Russia for the May holidays. It is quite possible that in the situation with hotels, solutions will be found that satisfy both parties.

        At the same time, we are indignant at how bad Putin is that he sells gas there. Do you personally drive tourists there yourself?

      ... As if smeared with honey

      Rostourism has nothing else to do, except to pile up the loot and pump profits. Russia itself is full of wonderful resorts and vacation spots. Obsessed with Egypt, Thailand, Turkey and other foreign countries.
      At a time when our people must unite for the successful implementation of the NWO and the reindustrialization of the country.
      Dances of the oligarchs of Rostourism during the plague.

        Excuse me, but what does Rostourism and its oligarchs have to do with it? Do they force you to go to Turkey?

          Rostourism is a federal executive body that carries out the functions of developing and implementing state policy in the field of tourism and tourism activities in Russia.
          Ankara sends weapons to the Kyiv regime, incl. drones, blocked the straits and flights of Russian aircraft to Syria, and at this time, our tourists are carrying foreign currency to Turkey. Do you think this is normal?

            I don't think it's normal. On the contrary, I ask why "our tourists are carrying currency to Turkey"? Does Rostourism make them? Or are they, excuse me, stupid and do not understand what's what? Do you want to say that the Federal Tourism Agency should ban the departure of unreasonable children? Well, this is probably the authority of the Foreign Ministry.
            And yes, why the "oligarchs of Rostourism"? I looked at the list of employees of the central office of Rostourism, did not notice anything criminal. Maybe one of the freelance advisers? What are we talking about?

      ? clean sea, good cuisine, mostly friendly, understanding Russian, Turks. it’s just that no one canceled capitalism, which is why the owners of hotels and resorts choose. I don't think there should be any offense.

    "Do not trust a woman and a Turk" (old wisdom). There is a clear shortage of wise and understanding people in the leadership of the Russian Federation.

    It's time for the authorities to warn such tourists that now visiting abroad they act at their own peril and risk, there are a lot of Ukronazis shying through the streets in crowds!
