Notis Marias, a former MEP and leader of the Greece – Another Way party, proposed canceling a visa for Russian tourists and taking advantage of the fact that Turkey is closed due to the coronavirus.
The leader of the political party said that Greece can take advantage of the current situation related to the restriction of flights to Turkey by the Russian authorities. The abolition of the compulsory visa will attract millions of Russians to Greece.
” Να καταργηθεί εδώ και τώρα η βίζα για τους Ρώσους τουρίστες
The professor and ex-member of the European Parliament believes that the Greek authorities should allow Russians to enter with a simple presentation of a passport and, of course, in accordance with the terms of sanitary protocols. So he commented on the visit of the head of the Ministry of Tourism Haris Theocharis to the Russian Federation in preparation for the opening of borders.
As we reported earlier, the Minister of Tourism of Greece Haris Theocharis said that now up to 4,000 Russians can come a week. Unfortunately, they need to quarantine upon arrival, but it is possible that soon this measure will be canceled, as it was done for the countries of the European Union, as well as the United Kingdom, the United States of America, the United Arab Emirates, Serbia and Israel from April 19.
