By the of the day on Monday, 2 October, a ban will become effective on the entry of Russian cars on the territory of Bulgaria, Border Police director Chief Commissioner Anton Zlatanov said in an interview with public service TV BNT.

Two days ago, in a Movement for Rights and Freedoms position, MP Delyan Peevski demanded that the government implement, immediately, the European ban on the entry into the country of cars with Russian registration. Peevski demanded that the minister of foreign affairs and the minister of finance instruct the border police and customs to apply the European Commission ban, sent over two weeks ago, which is part of the sanctions against Russia over the war it is waging against Ukraine.  

Chief Commissioner Zlatanov stated that a ban on the entry of trucks has been in place for several months. The measure was introduced by the European Commission on 11 September, and is now in place in Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia, Poland, Finland and Norway.
