The head of the Mediterranean tourist association of hoteliers Ercan Yagchi believes that about 250 thousand Russian police officers and their families will visit Turkey starting from August this year.

This became possible after lifting the ban on Russian ministry of internal affairs employees to choose Turkish resorts as a holiday destination.

We hope to receive about 250,000 Russian police officers this year, writes Hurriyet Daily News quoting Ercan Yagchi.

He believes that the peak of holidaying will fall on the second half of August.

Russian foreign ministry issued a decree not recommending the Russian police officers to travel to 116 countries including Turkey in 2014. This year June 22, Russian interior minister Vladimir Kolokoltsev signed another decree allowing police officers to spend holidays in Turkey and Thailand. Previously, China, Cuba, Vietnam, Kazakhstan and some CIS countries were also permitted for the visits.
