The Embassy of Romania Returns to Kyiv 

Romanian diplomats resumed work in Ukraine during the war 

Foreign politicians and official media said that Russia could launch an armed offensive against Ukraine before February 24. However, not all embassies in Ukraine had ceased their activities and had called diplomats home. On February 24, 2022, Russia attacked the territory of Ukraine, so the official representatives of the interests and leadership of different countries were withdrawn from a dangerous point. Including the ambassadors of Romania. On 26 February, the Romanian embassy in Ukraine ceased its activities.

On 14 May, the Romanian government announced the resumption of work in Ukraine. The Kyiv region is under the control of the Ukrainian army — diplomats can return to their jobs. At the moment, foreign partners are safe. However, the Ukrainian Government called on not to ignore the alarms and thanked the politicians of other countries for their support and confidence in Ukraine’s armed forces.

The head of the Romanian foreign ministry did not stay away and commented on the return of the embassy to the country where the war is going on.

"I am very pleased to announce that the Romanian embassy in Kyiv has resumed its activities as of today. Romania fully supports its partner Ukraine in its courageous struggle for freedom," wrote Romanian foreign minister Bogdan Aurescu on Twitter.

As for the missions of other countries, they are returning to the capital of Ukraine too. The Ministry of foreign affairs of Ukraine reports that 38 embassies have resumed their work in Kyiv.
