In coordination with the Ministry of foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation (hereinafter – the Ministry of foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation) will issue a circular instructions of the Ministry of foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation on the simplified procedure for issuing visas to the event and informing the Russian consular missions abroad about this procedure. However, many European countries have travel restrictions, no training at certain times, and quarantine restrictions when they return home from Russia. The Organizing Committee for the European Championship wants to know how many countries are ready to participate in these competitions in order to continue the final work.
