tourist from Russia spoke about the tense situation in Istanbul


A Russian tourist who visited Istanbul on the eve of the second round of the country’s presidential elections spoke about the tense situation in the city.

“Something in Istanbul has become uncomfortable. Some kind of tension is felt right in the air, ”the Russian described his feelings after his stay in Istanbul with these words.

There are police officers with machine guns everywhere and it is unlikely that all this will end soon, because the political changes in Turkey are only gaining momentum. Even on less crowded streets or intersections, according to a tourist from the Russian Federation, you can meet armed law enforcement officers who are watching to prevent provocations or terrorist acts.

“When you see one policeman with a machine gun, it is surprising, but when today I met more than a dozen machine gunners at a distance of a meter, disturbing thoughts begin to creep into my head,” our compatriot said.

So far, the situation in Istanbul is generally calm, but the situation can change at any moment and you need to be prepared for this. Recall that six days remain until the second round of the presidential elections in Turkey.

The main favorites are Kemal Kılıçdaroğlu and Recep Tayyip Erdogan. In case of his victory, the oppositionist Kilychdaroglu promised to evict refugees from the country, writes “Tourist flow”.
