Medvedev made a surprise visit to Komsomolets coal mine in Siberian city of Leninski-Kuznetski and got information on labour security from the officials. Medvedev went down to a 150m depth in the mine.
Russian Prime Minister Medvedev asked miners about their salaries and if they could go for a vacation or not. The miners complained that their salaries were not enough and they cannot go for an overseas vacation because of wars everywhere.
When a miner said we cannot go even to Egypt Medvedev said "but Turkey is there" and proposed them Turkey as a vacation destination
