Tourism: Arabic Factor as a Chance for Russia

During the series of the years Russian tourists spend their time and their money in Egypt and Tunis. At the same time Russian touristic zones located at the Black Sea (Anapa etc) move to nothing losing the quality of the service.
Looking at the North Africa events, Russians can redirect the touristic stream to the Russian resorts. All what they have to do is just raise the service and decrease the corruption around the Black Sea coast.
If they did it, they would have earned more than in their Olympic Games.
The directed stream of the paying customers costs more than the 2 weeks of winter sports.
It is time for Russia make money there!

But in Russian realities it sounds like a fairy tale.

They Sell Saint Petersburg

The historical ensemble of Mikhail Romanoff with a big land area was sold by the St Petersburg Property Fund to the unknown “investor”.
The sum of this “purchase” according the “tender” = RUR 520 million

The experts say about corruption.
The  authorities say they do not have enough funds to maintain the masterpiece.

It sounds strange – they do not have the funds to support the historical treasures and at the same time they spend enormous sums to support Ossetia, Abkhasia, Tadzhikistan, CIS and other useless (from the economic point of view) territories. How would you name this strategy?

If you say THIS about Matvienko…

…you will be immediately fired…
…the way it has happened with the famous radio host Dmitry Gubin (Vesti FM, Moscow radio).

The talented radio host was fired as soon as he said about the situation in Saint-Petersburg

It looks like Russian authorities did not hear about the democracy and the Human Rights to speak.
