The Bulgarian Embassy in Kyiv could resume work from next month –


Bulgarian Embassy in Kyiv

In September, the embassy of the Republic of Bulgaria in Kyiv can be restored, if military conditions allow, announced Deputy Foreign Minister Kostadin Kojabashev, who before taking up this post was our country’s ambassador to the Ukrainian capital.

The first group of Bulgarian diplomats will leave for Kyiv early September to begin work, and the second at the end of September. If there are 40 vote requests, the sections will be revealed there.

At the moment, conditions in Odessa do not allow the opening of our consulate in the city.

With regard to the actions of the Republic of North Macedonia towards the Bulgarian associations of Ohrid and Bitola, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs is monitoring the process, calling on Skopje to fulfill the Copenhagen criteria, which it has undertaken, has explained Zhelyazko Radulkov, the expert who also works on the so-called “French proposal”.

Kojabashev explained that the Ministry of Foreign Affairs will help the Bulgarian community in Albania to meet President Rumen Radev in view of the upcoming population census in Tirana and the problems linked to the insistence of Macedonian organizations that there are Macedonians and not Bulgarians there. The meeting was called for in an ENB report earlier this week.

Next week, at the informal meeting of EU foreign ministers “Gymnich”, Bulgaria will support the proposal of the Czech Presidency to suspend the agreement to facilitate the issuance of visas to Russian citizens, but for now there is no question of a complete suspension of the issuance of visas.

Since March, our consular services have issued 8,800 visas to Russian citizens, but the number of them who have entered our territory remains unclear.
