The Professional Association of Foreign Service Officers, PAFSO, announced the termination of the strike of employees of Canadian consulates around the world.
As many as 1,350 foreign workers went on a legal strike on April 2, 2013.
The Russian Union of Travel Industry reports that the Canadian Consulate in Moscow was still unwilling to communicate with the tourist industry. There is still no information on when the tourists are going to receive their passports that got stuck in the consulate office during the period of the strike.
Because of the strike, the summer season for tour operators working with Canadian destinations was frustrated.
As of the morning of May 12, 23 people remain in Kazan hospitals after the shooting that took place at School N175
