MOSCOW, Nov 9 — the US Sanctions against four Crimean sanatoria will not affect the tourist attractiveness of the Peninsula, said at a press conference, the Executive Director of the Association of tour operators of Russia (ATOR) Maya Lomidze.
“I think no (the sanctions will not affect the attractiveness of the resort. — Approx. ed.). Sanctions imposed against legal entities, means the legal entity will not be able to interact, perhaps with some partners from abroad. People who come to these objects to rest, they will not touch it,” — said Lomidze.
According to published Thursday documents on the website of the U.S. Treasury, the United States imposed sanctions against four Crimean sanatoria (“AI-Petri”, “Dulber”, “Mishor” and Mriya Resort & SPA) and also the power company “Krymtel” and “South project” belonging to Bank “Russia” Yuri Kovalchuk, which at the end of 2017 bought at auction 100% of the shares of the Crimean factory of sparkling wines “New world”.
