Crimean authorities are working hard to make Cannes- and Nice-bound vacationers change their mind and set their sights on the Black Sea peninsula, Russian media quoted Crimea’s top prosecutor as saying on Wednesday.

Crimean Prosecutor Poklonskaya Invites Foreigners to Enjoy Peninsula
Natalya Poklonskaya said that she couldn’t care less about the western sanctions preventing her from traveling to Europe and America.

“I have no blues about being unable to go to Cannes or Nice… I am happy about the beautiful places we have here, they just need to be put in order. I want people who live in Cannes and Nice to dream about coming to Crimea,” Poklonskaya told RIA Novosti.

She added that while the western countries were busy slapping sanctions on Crimeans, the peninsular was throwing its doors wide open for all.

“We are working to make people eager to come here to enjoy the atmosphere and energy they will find nowhere else in the whole world,” Natalya Poklonskaya said.

The Crimean Peninsula on the Black Sea rejoined Russia in 2014, following a referendum in which 96 percent of the population voted in favor of the move.

The region has long been a popular vacation resort for Russians, with sprawling beaches and picturesque mountainous coastlines.
