Bulgaria, as well as Estonia, were urged to abandon trips to

Russia

and, if possible, to leave the country.

This was reported in the press services of the Ministries of Foreign Affairs of Bulgaria and Estonia.

The Bulgarian agency emphasizes that they came to such a decision "in connection with the deterioration of the situation".

Those who are in the Russian Federation are advised to avoid places of mass gathering of people, to take into account the circumstances and the development of the situation.

"The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Bulgaria urges to refrain from traveling to the Russian Federation and recommends that Bulgarian citizens in the Russian Federation consider the possibility of leaving the country as soon as possible, using the currently available means of transportation," the message reads.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs emphasizes that they are asking not to travel to the Russian Federation unless absolutely necessary "in connection with Russia's military actions."

Holders of dual citizenship were warned that Moscow considers them as its citizens.

Estonians are also asked to register their stay on the website of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

"We ask Estonian citizens who are temporarily in Russia to weigh the importance of their stay in Russia and, if possible, return to Estonia," the message states.

As reported, 

Lithuania will not grant asylum to those who simply run away from responsibility.

 Russians should stay and fight against Putin, noted the head of the Lithuanian Foreign Ministry, Gabrielus Landsbergis.
