    Russia's Federal Agency for Tourism (Rosturism) called on Russian tourists in Turkey not to leave the resorts and to avoid crowded areas amid the attempted military coup in the country, according to a statement issued on Saturday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Members of Turkey's armed forces night tried to stage a military coup late Friday night.

    "Rosturism recommends Russian citizens staying in the Republic of Turkey to remain calm, not to panic, not to leave the resort areas and places of residence, to refrain from guided tours, not to take part in rallies and demonstrations, to avoid crowded area," the statement read.
