According to her, last year it was France and Spain, but this year the list of countries enlarged.
"In the majority of case embassies explain their refusal, but their explanations do not allow understanding the real reason of denying visa. It proves that the work of embassies is not transparent," Sushko said.
Most of the respondents said they would not appeal the refusal, as it is very expensive and complicated procedure.
