Some two million tourists have come to Crimea so far in 2014, during the peak summer tourist season, including 300,000 Ukrainians, according to Crimean authorities.
The biggest drop is in Ukrainian tourists. According to the Crimean Ministry of Tourism and Resorts, last year 3.5 million Ukrainians and 1.5 million Russians visited Crimea. This year, many Ukrainians are spurning Crimean resorts for political reasons.
