Russia was the second largest source of tourists for Turkey, before Ankara’s downing of a Russian airplane in November 2015. The incident sharply decreased the number of Russians visiting Turkey, as Moscow imposed sanctions on Ankara. Now with the sanctions lifted, Ankara hopes that the number of Russian tourists will increase. And this may not happen soon. Press TV’s Riley Waggaman tells us why from Moscow.
