MOSCOW (Sputnik) — According to the source, emergency flights might be organized to bring Russian tourists back home as regular flights between Russia and Turkey were provisionally barred.
"The Russian Emergencies Ministry are ready to evacuate the Russian tourists currently holidaying in Turkey, if necessary. They have already requested the ATOR for accurate number of tourists staying at the country's resorts and asked for the lists," the source said.
The coup attempt was reportedly suppressed by early Saturday, with Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yildirim stating that all coup supporters were identified and would be apprehended as the country was returning to normal life. Over 180 people were killed and 1,470 were injured during the events, while nearly 3,000 people have already been detained, according to the prime minister.
