MINSK, 2 April (BelTA) – Belarus is the most attractive country for Russian tourists in the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS), Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of Russia to Belarus Alexander Surikov told a press conference timed to the Day of Unity of the Peoples of Belarus and Russia on 2 April, BelTA has learned.

“From all the CIS countries, Belarus is the most attractive for the Russian tourism in all its aspects,” Alexander Surikov said.
