Montenegro included Russia on the list of the green zone countries, as Radio and Television of Montenegro (RTCG) broadcaster reported.
The authorities of Montenegro believe that such a decision might attract Russian tourists for the early recovery of the tourism industry.
“It will create the precondition for the creation of particular tourist traffic in August and September. We all know that the height of the season is the period of time when mostly the guests from Russia arrive,” Director of the National Tourism Organisation of Montenegro Željka Radak-Kukavičić said.
Besides, the citizens of Azerbaijan will be able to enter the country without some extra conditions.
However, Consul of Ukraine’s Embassy in Montenegro Mykhailo Shmatov expressed outrage.
“I am outraged that Russia was immediately put in the green zone. Without any terms! I remind that Ukraine that provides Montenegro with a great number of tourists since the beginning of the summer, having 13-14 flights in a week, is restricted in the rights,” Shmatov said.
He reminded that the Ukrainian citizens are still banned from traveling by car and the entrance to the country by plane is allowed only as members of the tourist group.
As we reported, the Montenegrin government banned the entrance for Ukrainian tourists who travel by land. The border crossing procedure is possible by air. The restrictions also consider Belarusian citizens.
