Embassy of Ireland Returns to Ukraine

The embassy of Ireland announced the resumption of work after remote functioning amid the war

According to the Irish media RTE, the embassy of Ireland has resumed its work in Kyiv. Due to the Russian attack on Ukraine, the embassy was working remotely from Dublin. Simon Coveney, the minister of foreign affairs of Ireland, said that shortly, the embassy will restart its duties directly in Kyiv.

According to the minister, his department, together with colleagues from the European Union and other international organizations, are "closely following" the events in our country. So far, that Ireland "strongly discourages" tourist trips to Ukraine. However, the resumption of the embassy's work is necessary for the timely receipt of information and a quick reaction between states.

"As the embassy reopens in Kyiv, a key priority for the team will be to rebuild and develop a network of contacts with Ukrainian officials to better communicate Ireland's support and assistance to the government and people of Ukraine," Simon Coveney.

We remind you that on July 6, Micheal Martin, the prime minister of Ireland, arrived in Kyiv for a personal meeting with president Zelenskyy.
