The Israeli Embassy in kyiv reopens for the first time since it was closed after the start of the war

June 23 (EUROPA PRESS) –

The Embassy of Israel has reopened its doors this Thursday for the first time since it was closed after the start of the war with Russia, triggered on February 24 by the invasion order given by Russian President Vladimir Putin.

“The Israeli diplomatic presence in kyiv is very important for us and it is another sign of Israel’s support for Ukraine,” said Israel’s ambassador to Turkey, Michael Brodsky, according to the Yedioth Ahronoth newspaper.

The Israeli government announced at the end of February, before the start of the war, the transfer of its Embassy in Ukraine from the capital to the city of Lviv, near the border with Poland. Thus, it was one of the first countries, along with the United States or the United Kingdom, to announce its diplomatic withdrawal from kyiv before the imminent outbreak of the conflict.
