    The tourist flow from Russia to Turkey may be restored within three months, Vice President of the Association of Tour Operators of Russia (ATOR) Dmitry Gorin said Wednesday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Earlier in the day Russian President Vladimir Putin held a phone conversation with his Turkish counterpart Recep Tayyip Erdogan. The leaders agreed to restore bilateral relations, inluding in the spheres of trade and tourism.

    "We can presume that the tourist flow will recover to the pre-restrictions level within approximately three months," Gorin said as quoted by Rossiya-24 TV channel.

    The Turkish tourism industry faced a decline after Russia banned organized travel to the republic in the wake of the November 24, 2015 downing of a Russian Su-24 attack aircraft by Turkey in Syria.
