The Republic of Cyprus is going to set up three consulates in Russia very soon, Chairman of Cyprus Tourism Organization Alekos Orundiotis informed the reporters.

‘The additional consulates will soon start working in Yekaterinburg, Krasnodar, and Samara. It is now only the matter of some technicalities on the Russian part,’ RIA Novosti quoted Orundiotis as saying.

The executive reported 180,000 Russian tourists visited the island in 2008, although the figure dropped the following year due to economic recession and the devaluation of the ruble.

Orundiotis says Russia is the third largest provider of visitors to Cyprus after England and Germany, RIA Novosti.
