Russia's Syria Tourism: Interview with Journalist Elnar Baynazarov

Two Russian travel companies offered tours to Syria. They promised to take tourists to the capital city Damascus, former rebel stronghold Alleppo and the Roman ruins in Palmyra.

One of them has removed its advert, after the Russian Tourism Ministry warned people not to visit the country, but the other still appears to be offering a trip in March 2020.

Elnar Baynazarov is a correspondent for the Russian newspaper Izvestia. He joins us to discuss who is going to Syria now, and why?
