There may be over 150,000 Russian tourists overseas, some may be stranded

Airspace bans against Russian airlines are working.

However some Russian tourists may have trouble getting home. Some may be stranded for a while. Certainly this pales to what Ukrainian citizens are facing. Their lives and homes are at stake due to Russian aggression against Ukraine. Many have been forced to flee the country.

According to TASS, Russian tour operators calculate the number of Russian tourists outside of Russia to be currently over 150,000, with some 27,000 in countries directly affected by air travel bans.

In addition, Russian airlines may be forced to return their leased aircraft.
