Can I travel to Crimea using a Russian tourist visa?

Will any of the third-parties used by WaytoRussia provide a visa support form to travel to Crimea? Are there any extra complications for getting visas to Crimea? I am a citizen of the United Kingdom.

I haven't heard about any restriction for visiting crimea. It is considered a part of Russia like other regions. So you can travel there free.
