The Swiss Embassy in Moscow will start issuing Schengen visas on Monday.

This European state has already become the 25th party to the agreement. All countries that acceded to the treaty, signed in 1985 at Schengen Castle near Luxemburg, use a single database of offenders and stolen cars.

At the same time, Switzerland is one of the few Schengen states that is not a member of the European Union.
