“Three polling stations will be opened in Russia for the parliamentary elections in Bulgaria on 2 October,” caretaker Minister of Foreign Affairs Nikolay Milkov said at a meeting convened by President Rumen Radev. Usually, 4-5 polling stations are organized in Russia, but there will probably be 3. It is a problem that the Bulgarian embassy in Kyiv is temporarily closed. To organize the election in Ukraine, we shall count most of all on the Bulgarian community being active because posting officials there in the conditions of wartime risk is complicated, Minister Milkov said further. Some dozen countries have already given their consent for the opening of polling stations.

Votes are expected to be cast abroad at 700 to 800 voting stations. The embassies are relying on maintaining a dialogue and working together with the Bulgarian communities abroad for organizing and holding the election, Nikolay Milkov stated.
