As CEO of Tourpomosch Vyacheslav Basov says, if someone from tour operators can not fulfill their obligations and the urgent evacuation of tourists will be needed, the fund will be enough to return to Russia of not more than 15 thousand tourists. To calculate that, the average costs were taken from last year, which is $ 200 per person.
