Newsline: South Korean embassy resumes operations in Ukraine’s Kyiv

The South Korean ambassador to Ukraine and a part of the diplomatic staff have returned to Kyiv to restart the operation from May 2, the South Korean Foreign Ministry said. Seoul evacuated the embassy from Kyiv in late February and established two temporary liaison offices in the Ukrainian cities of Lviv and Chernivtsi, and one in Romania soon after Russia launched its military operation in Ukraine. The Lviv office was closed on March 18. “The South Korean embassy is preparing to resume operation from May 2 and intending to conduct diplomatic work in Kyiv in even closer cooperation with the Ukrainian government in order to protect its citizens in Ukraine,” the ministry said in a statement.

The rest of the embassy’s diplomatic staff still remains in Chernivtsi and Romania, also considering a gradual return to Kyiv depending on the situation.
