Russia is never far away from the headlines - whether it's politics, science or culture.
The country's travel sector is no less interesting, too - so add a global pandemic into the mix of 2020 and some interesting results emerge.
We spoke to Max Kraynov, CEO of Aviasales, this week for the latest episode of InPhocus.
In the discussion, he touches on the different approach (both physically and in the psyche of many of its citizens) that the country has taken to tackling the coronavirus.
And, of course, how it relates back to travel and the recovery of the tourism sector in Russia.
PhocusWire's Kevin May is on solo hosting duties this week for this episode of InPhocus.
