Aleksander Mikhailov added that he had documents to prove his words but did not show them.
In the spring, the Bulgarian parliament approved a decision on the repair of Ukrainian military equipment in defense companies. In June, the Bulgarian Prime Minister refused to supply Ukraine with weapons to defend it against the Russian Federation.
In addition, Bulgaria will indefinitely stop issuing tourist visas to Russians and visas to property owners.
This was announced by the Association of Tour Operators of Russia (ATOR). According to the association, Bulgarian diplomats informed tour operators about this.
Diplomats cite the announcement made on August 5 by 14 employees of Bulgaria‘s diplomatic missions and consular posts in Russia as persona non grata.
Due to staff shortages, the consular service of the Russian Embassy in Bulgaria and the Consulate General of the Russian Federation in Varna have partially suspended their work.
