The Consul of Russia in Varna: There is no document that Bulgaria is an unfriendly state

“There are no flights for tourists from Russia until May. How the situation will unfold so far no one can say yet. Let's hope that everything will be easier and better,” the Consul General of Russia in Varna Vladimir Klimanov said in Dobrich at the celebrations for May 9th.
About how correct is the information that Russia will include Bulgaria in the list of so-called “unfriendly countries”, the diplomat said: “There are all sorts of versions on this issue, but there is no real document. I would like to add that the Russians read a lot — newspapers, the Internet, they follow things and they're pretty much aware of what's going on in the world.” The Russian market is huge and for every tourist destination a place will be found, Klimanov explained in response to a question whether Turkey and Greece are Bulgaria's competition for the coming summer season.

Currently Russians who bought in our country real estate, sell them, but there are those who buy. “The covid-pandemic definitely took a toll - those who do not have temporary residence or permanent residence cannot come here because in practice between Russia and Bulgaria there are no regular flights for one year, but pay property taxes,” the consul said.
