Due to the Russian invasion of Ukraine, almost all the embassies of other states either completely left Ukraine or moved to the country's western regions. Now diplomatic commanders are one by one restoring their presence in Ukraine.
On May 10, the Ministry of foreign affairs of Greece published on its website an announcement about the return of the embassy of the state to Ukraine.
"The Greek embassy in Kyiv, whose staff members had evacuated the city due to security reasons shortly after the Russian invasion of Ukraine, is operating again with the essential staff. Manolis Androulakis, who was the consul general of Greece in Mariupol until a few weeks ago, has taken office as chargé d’affairs. The embassy, together with the consulate general in Odesa, which is operating normally, will continue to provide all possible assistance to Greek citizens, as well as to diaspora Greeks in Ukraine."
