Unless, that is, "minister of tourism" is the new Russian euphemism for "minister of war". There was a Russian official who liked to brag that "Russian tanks don't need visas"the highest ranking Russian official to meet Xi on the tarmac when he arrived was ... the deputy minister of tourism. Not the foreign minister or Putin himself. That's gonna get noticed and recorded, even though everyone is all smiles in the pictures that get published.
Russian Official: 'Tanks Don't Need Visas'
An outspoken deputy prime minister in charge of Russia's defense sector has dismissed Western concerns over Moscow's increased assertiveness in the Arctic by saying that "tanks don't need visas."
Although, in the best of Russian traditions, that ministry would be called "ministry of peace".
