The Goverment of Russia has accepted the proposal of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs to open an office of the Russian Embassy in the Republic of Srpska.

The embassy office will be located in Banja Luka, said the official portal for legal information.

The competencies of the embassy office are as yet undetermined, but the public is speculating that it will not only handle consular affairs, but also a part of the affairs of the embassy in Sarajevo itself.
