"Russian tourists are in a hurry to see Cuba while it is preserving its socialist attractions," says the publication.
On Saturday, September 2 The director of public relations of "Anex Tur", Yana Kuchegura, said demand for the Russian market to travel to the Caribbean island has grown by more than 40% compared to the same period last year.
Someone tell me, please: What is a socialist attraction?
Yes, the USA is a fine example, isn't it?
Police States are so charming.
“Russian tourists are in a hurry to see Cuba while it is preserving its socialist attractions,” says the publication. What the hell are "socialist attractions?" Russians are streaming into Cuba to reminisce on how well they had it when they were totally a socialist country. I'm sure all of them would give up their newly acquired wealth and lifestyles for just another chance at total government control of their lives. LOL. These writers don't even try to hide their bias any longer. Who in this day and age is still promoting the socialist lifestyle when you have Venezuela as a model?
I've met various Russian tourists during many trips to Cuba and have dined with a few of them. Like many other nationalities, they are typically nice friendly people.
