Bring the Russians here this summer

I READ in the Irish Independent that Ireland lost 15pc of tourists in 2010, mostly from the UK. Why not take another country as an example of how to invite more tourists?
Let's look at Cyprus. As a native Russian, I know that before 2004 (when Cyprus introduced visas) a lot of Russians had holidays there.
In 2004, however, Cyprus lost approximately 90pc of Russian tourists, but there were enough UK tourists.
