Bulgaria to Set Up 19 Visa Consular Services Across Russia

Bulgaria's Foreign Minister Daniel Mitov announced on Saturday that Sofia would take measures to eases access to Bulgaria for Russian tourists.
In his words, the move could allow "all Russian tourists who want to come to Bulgaria to do it."
Mitov's comments come as many experts and tourist industry representatives had raised their concern that tourist flow from Russia would decrease this summer due to the sanctions Europe has imposed on Moscow over the Ukraine crisis. 
The Bulgarian top diplomat told Bulgaria On Air TV station that alongside Tourism Minister Nikolina Angelkova he was working to attract tourists from a host of countries including Belarus or Turkey. 
He pointed to the fact that in many countries near Bulgaria, the number of tourists from Russia had declined dramatically in 2015, most notably in Greece (4 times), Egypt (by 50%) and Turkey (by a quarter).
