16 foreign embassies have resumed their operations in Kyiv, Ukraine’s Foreign Ministry said on April 18, following wide-ranging evacuations from the Ukrainian capital city at the start of the Russian invasion of Ukraine in late February.
“Every day, more and more foreign diplomatic missions are resuming their work from Kyiv,” reads the foreign ministry’s statement.
“It signifies worldwide support of, and confidence in, Ukraine.”
In addition to a newly reopened EU mission, the following countries have since reopened their embassies in Ukraine’s capital: France, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Estonia, Poland, Turkey, Czechia, Slovenia, the Vatican, Moldova, Georgia, Iran, Kazakhstan, Tajikistan, and Turkmenistan.
According to White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki, the United States also intends to reopen its embassy in Kyiv, but it has yet to establish a clear timeline for doing so.
