Major tourism operators with Turkish shares will have to review their presence in the Russian market, and many Russians, working for those companies, may face losing jobs, press secretary of the Russian Union of Tourism Industry Irina Turina said on Monday, Tass reported. “The holdings, which unite big operators, will have to decide whether they should continue working in Russia,” she said. “Those are big companies, employing 600-800 Russians each. If the Turkish operators decide to quit the Russian market, all those people will lose jobs. However, even if the companies continue working, they will anyway cut jobs since the destinations of Turkey and Egypt are closed for now.”
