Crimea Considers Banning Foreigners Print E-mail

Crimean lawmakers are considering a ban on foreign tourists to their region.

The Moscow Times reports that, "Lawmakers in Crimea, which Russia annexed from Ukraine earlier this year, are seeking a presidential decree to prohibit foreigners from entering the region's largest city, Sevastopol, a popular Black Sea tourist destination."

Parkhomenko is quoted as saying that, "This is a matter of safety. The city is filled with military sites … so under the current conditions there needs to be a certain vigilance."

As reported by the Moscow Times, "While Crimea was part of Ukraine, the region's population was known to swell two to three times at the height of the summer tourist season, Communist faction leader Vasily Parkhomenko told the Interfax news agency on Saturday."

Crimean lawmakers intend to vote on the bill on Thursday.
