A number of different agreements, including renewed visits of Turkish resorts, were signed just after a telephone conversation between the Presidents of the Russian Federation and the Republic of Turkey.

Vladimir Putin has already given the instructions to the government to lift administrative restrictions, which had been in effect earlier.

This information has appeared on the website of the Kremlin head’s press service. The report stresses that the decision was reached during the telephone conversation today.

'I would like to start with the issues of tourism. We’ll lift the administrative restrictions. Erdogan assured me that they are to do everything possible to ensure the safety of our citizens,' the President of Russia said.

According to the report, similar moves are expected to be done from the Turkish government.

Russian experts in the field of tourism, including Irina Turina the press secretary of the Russian Union of Travel Industry, said that the renovation of tourist traffic to Turkey is very simple to implement, and the first flights are possible to do next week. As for the full charter programs, it’ll take about a month to implement them.

According to her, the main problem is in obtaining permission for flights from Rosaviatsiya. The tourist flow has not been reduced.
