The Russian Foreign Ministry invited the ex-President of Estonia Toomas Hendriks Ilves to study the issue of how important Russian tourists are for Turkey and Greece.
Let us remind you that Ilves on April 18 proposed to temporarily ban any trips of Russians to the EU countries, except those caused by urgent circumstances. He noted that “the security of Europe is at stake.”
As if RIA Novosti writes, the idea of the former leader of Estonia was commented on by the Deputy Foreign Minister of the Russian Federation Alexander Grushko.
“Ilves should have talked with the heads of such localities as Turkey and Greece, about the relative importance of tourism and its Russian segment in particular,” the diplomat emphasized.
Note that Ilves served as president since 2006, in October 2016, after two terms, he retired.
