In today’s episode, Cyprus is hoping to attract over two million foreign visitors this year, according to Deputy Minister of Tourism Savvas Perdios, who admitted the loss of around 800,000 potential visitors from the Russian and the Ukrainian markets represents a significant blow for the island.

Elsewhere, Labour Minister Zeta Emilianidou remains in a medically induced coma as she receives treatment in Athens after suffering cerebral aneurism, with President Nicos Anastasiades set to visit her today.

In other news, six out of ten of Cypriots aged 25 to 34 hold a degree, the third highest rate in the EU and well above the bloc’s target of 45 per cent by 2030.
