“Due to a shortage of employees, the consular service of the Russian Embassy in Bulgaria and the Consulate General of the Russian Federation in Varna have partially suspended their work. The Consulate General of the Russian Federation in Ruse has suspended work. The Consulate General of Bulgaria in Yekaterinburg is temporarily closed,” ATOR said.

Recall that the Latvian  Embassy  in Russia has also suspended the issuance of all visas for Russian citizens for an indefinite period. The only exception to the issuance of a visa will be the need to travel to the funeral of one of the close relatives.
