"Indicatively punish" Russians vacationing abroad

The first deputy chairman of the State Duma Committee on Education and Science, the former chief sanitary doctor of Russia, Gennady Onishchenko, called for «demonstrative punishment» for Russians vacationing in Tunisia and Cyprus. This is reported by the Federal News Agency (FAN).

According to the politician, traveling abroad in the midst of a pandemic is an unacceptable situation. He proposed to introduce administrative responsibility for travel to countries with an unfavorable epidemiological situation, calling them «dirty rookeries.»

Onishchenko also criticized alternative ways to get to beach resorts bypassing restrictions. “Until recently, they flew to Minsk, from there to Kiev, and from there to Turkey. There were many such would-be travelers, until this «pale young man with a burning gaze» finally quarreled between Ukraine and Belarus, «the deputy was indignant.

Earlier in June, Rosturizm threatened airlines to cancel the admission to carry out passenger-and-freight flights between countries with which flights have not been officially resumed. So, in the event of a flight cancellation, the operators will be liable to customers for the improper provision of services.
