“There is no accurate information how many Bulgarians there are in Russia,” Foreign Minister in the caretaker government Nikolay Milkov said at a briefing.

“Bulgarians with dual citizenship are treated as Russian citizens as long as they are on the territory of Russia, and they have military obligations,” he added. In his words, Bulgaria is ready to assist Bulgarian citizens who want to leave Russia, but no such specific requests have been submitted as yet. There are people who have contacted the embassy which is keeping in touch with them.
