Bulgarians sent a refusal 

FIDE President assistant Berik Balgabayev confirmed on his Twitter-page that the Candidates 2014 will take place in Khanty-Mansiysk, Russia. Earlier this was announced by Evgeny Bareev.

Balgabayev wrote, "Bulgarian side sent a refusal with a very strange explanation. Apparently because Albena was denied with hosting Youth Championship. All this seems to be a bluff." 

Let us remind you that Bulgarian city Kozloduy was a candidate city for holding the Candidates. Earlier we reported FIDE was waiting for a guarantee letter from Bulgarian Chess federation up to today.   

We will follow the development of the events and provide you with the up to date commentaries on the issue.

According to this table taken from Wikipedia we can assume that the Candidates will be freezing.
