The Greece Visa Application Center in Russia has temporarily stopped accepting documents for visas from Russians.

This was reported in the Association of Tour Operators of Russia.

According to Russian tour operators, the visa center refers to technical reasons related to updating the system. At the same time, it is not specified when Greece plans to resume accepting documents from Russian citizens.

In addition, it is reported that from June 27, 2022, the Greek consulates in Moscow, Novorossiysk and St. Petersburg will suspend their work. At the same time, it is specified that visa centers will continue to provide consulting services and issue passports to tourists. Applicants who have an up-to-date entry for dates after June 27 are offered to reschedule it to a later date.

Earlier, the Russian Foreign Ministry complained that Russians are suffering in Greece because of "aggression and discrimination." For some reason, this attitude surprises the citizens and politicians of the aggressor country.

Thus, in an interview with the pro-Russian publication TASS, Yuri Pilipson, director of the fourth European department of the Russian Foreign Ministry, said that Greece has become a "dangerous place" for Russian citizens, so they should no longer consider it as a country for a safe holiday. According to a Russian diplomat, "sometimes they even record facts of beatings of Russian-speakers."
