Morsi was declared the new president of Egypt on Sunday, following the first democratic election in Egypt's history.
The victory of Muslim Brotherhood candidate Mohamed Morsi
in Egypt's presidential elections may prove beneficial for Bulgaria, Greece and
Turkey in terms of Russian tourists, according to Russian media.
"Muslim Brotherhood members already declared they do
not want to see half-naked tourists. They consider banning the free sale of
alcohol. They promised not to bother tourists, but being in an election
campaign is different from being in power," Irina Tyurina, spokeswoman for
the Russian Tourism Industry Union, has stated.
According to the Union, Russians have decide to substitute
Egypt with other holiday destinations, mainly Bulgaria, Greece and Turkey.
The victory of the Islamist candidate may completely
destroy Egypt's tourism industry, Russian channel NTV reckons.
