Russia is a distinguished country with a diverse environment and culture. The term environment refers to the natural resources and infrastructure available to benefit social and economic growth. One way to benefit from these abundantly available environmental factors is to develop the tourism industry, which Russia has accomplished. The industry has substantially contributed to the national GDP and improved people’s welfare involved in the industry. It also changed the impression of Russia, previously known to be a restricted country. Unfortunately, the inevitable COVID-19 pandemic has harmed all sectors of the tourism industry. The predicted slow recovery of the tourism industry is caused by the government’s aim to prioritize public health, such as improving health facilities and developing the vaccine Sputnik V. This article will analyze whether prioritizing the health sector will accelerate the recovery of the tourism industry. We shall explore the policies and measures taken by the government to support this process. We will also evaluate adaptations made in the tourism industry and the new ideas that will replace conventional tourism.
