Yandex, which is a service analysing data for the Association of the Tour Operators of Russia (ATOR), the increase in Greece by the Russians as a tourist destination is attributed to the devaluation of the euro against the US dollar and the Russian ruble, as well as the an intensified promotion campaign by tour operators to increase their share in the market. The minimum cost for a 7-day package holiday, for two adults in Greece amounted to 50,000 rubles.
