Health Tourists From 64 Countries Visited Crimea in 2016

Despite Western sanctions against Crimea, health tourists hailing from 64 countries across the globe visited the peninsula in 2016, head of the Crimean Parliament's Committee on Health-Resort Complex and Tourism Alexey Chernyak said on Friday.

"Last year, people from 64 countries visited Crimea to receive medical treatment despite the sanctions. That is the official figure of the [Russian] Federal Border Service. These [countries] are not only Kazakhstan and Ukraine but also the United States, the United Kingdom and Israel," Chernyak said.

He pointed out that Crimea's main attractions were its health resorts and that the peninsula would not compete with Turkey and Egypt in terms of coastal tourism.

"The main goal that the government set for us is to attract up to 10 million tourists per year," the lawmaker said, adding that Crimea was receiving great investments.

In 2016, a total 5.6 million people visited the Crimean peninsula that rejoined Russia after a referendum, according to Russia's TurStat agency. The plebiscite's result was not recognized by the international community as well as Ukraine that considers the peninsula as an occupied territory. Moscow views referendum in line with the UN Charter and perceives the issue of Crimea's territorial belonging as historically closed.
