“The official opening ceremony of the Honorary Consulate in Graz is scheduled to take place in early June,” he wrote on Facebook on Tuesday, April 20.
Lyubinsky held the first official meeting at the embassy in Vienna with the new honorary consul of Russia in Graz, Michael Pachleitner, where they discussed the procedure for interaction between the embassy and the fourth honorary consulate of the Russian Federation in Austria. They also raised issues related to plans for joint activities.
