AQMESCİT/SIMFEROPOL (QHA) - Ex-Chair of the permanent commission of the Verkhovna Rada of Crimea on resorts and tourism, Deputy Rustam Temirhaliiev considers the information of the Ministry of resorts and tourism of Crimea about increase of the quantity of tourists is at variance with the statistics, according to E-Krym.
Deputy specifies to the complicated methodology of calculation of tourists coming to Crimea on his Facebook page. “When they report about 20% increase and the million of tourists against a background of the bad weather, negative news from Simeiz, cancelation of flights because of lack of passengers, I have a question: “Why?”, - Temirhaliiev stressed.
In connection with the event of the meeting of the millionth tourist in Crimea, R. Temirhaliiev expresses his apprehension that “somebody pushes up Oleksandr Liiev from the status of the successful minister to a status of big swindler”.
"I hope sincerely that we have the opportunity to work on the quality of tourism on the peninsula this year without elections, postponing a meeting of the seven millionth tourists to the near future", - concluded the deputy.
