Newsline: Netherlands Reopens Ukrainian Embassy in Lviv

The Dutch government on Tuesday said it had reopened its embassy in the Ukrainian city of Lviv with a small number of staff last Saturday. “By first returning to Lviv in western Ukraine with a small staff, the embassy will get a good picture of the security situation there,” the Dutch Foreign Affairs ministry said. If the situation is deemed safe enough, the embassy will eventually return to the Ukrainian capital Kyiv, it added.

Staff then moved to Poland on Feb. 26. Several other European countries, including France, recently announced they would move back their embassies to Kyiv.
