Despite the novel coronavirus pandemic, around a million Ukrainian tourists visited Turkey in 2020, Kiev's envoy to Ankara said Thursday.

In a visit to the central province of Kayseri, Ambassador Andrii Sybiha and an accompanying Ukrainian delegation held a meeting with the city's mayor, Memduh Buyukkilic.
