Bulgaria opened the airspace for the Russian head of diplomacy to fly to Skopje for the OSCE Ministerial Council. The news was confirmed by the ambassador of the Russian Federation in Sofia, Eleonora Mitrofanova.

"We received a positive response to our note about the flight of Lavrov's plane through Bulgarian airspace. "The Bulgarian Ministry of Foreign Affairs has officially informed us that our minister is allowed to fly through the airspace above the country," Mitrofanova told Russian news agency TASS.

Earlier, speaking at the "Primakovo Reading" forum, Lavrov said that Russia will participate in the OSCE Ministerial Council in Skopje, only if Bulgaria opens the airspace for the plane of the Russian delegation.
