Poles upset about Russians traveling around the world
Russians continue to travel the world despite Western sanctions, according to the program of the Polish radio station Radio ZET. He is quoted by RIA Novosti.
The host noted that the purpose of the sanctions was, among other things, to prevent Russian citizens from traveling abroad on vacation. At the same time, it turned out that they did not stop driving, they just started choosing other places.
Last year alone, Russians made about 22.5 million tourist trips abroad, while in 2021 there were 19.2 million. Radio ZET believes that this year the figure will grow even stronger.
It was noted that most often Russians traveled to countries such as Turkey, Thailand, the United Arab Emirates, the Maldives and Egypt.
At the same time, the list of countries that are opening up for Russians is getting longer over time, Radio ZET summarizes.
