MOSCOW: Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov on Tuesday recommended against Russians travelling to Turkey for any reason, citing the threat of attacks.

“The critical mass of terrorist incidents on Turkish soil, according to our estimates, is no less of a threat than in Egypt. For this reason of course we do not recommend that our citizens travel to Turkey for tourism or any other reason,” Lavrov said in televised comments from Sochi after Turkey downed a Russian warplane on the Syrian border.
