Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev has approved measures aiming to support Russian tour operators. At the same time, Russia’s Federal Tourist Agency Rosturism has developed a programme that provides grants to the agencies that promote tourism within Russia.

“In 2016, there will be invested about 700 million rubles [8 million and 700 thousand euro] into the programme,” the head of the agency Oleg Safonov said.

According to him, the grants will be devolved directly to travel agents to organize group trips to various regions of Russia in law seasons.

There have been already selected top ten Russian tour operators that are participating in the programme. However, their names will not be disclosed before a official release.
