Russia-Ukraine War: US re-opens Embassy In Kyiv Three Months After Closure by fergie001: 9:45pm On May 18
Three months ago, we lowered our flag over the U.S. Embassy in Kyiv, Ukraine, just days before Russian forces streamed across Ukraine’s border to carry out President Putin’s unprovoked, unjustified war of choice. When we suspended operations at the embassy, we made the point clear: while we would relocate U.S. embassy personnel for their safety and security, this would in no way prevent our engagement with, and support for, the Ukrainian people, government, and civil society as well as our allies and partners. We underscored our commitment to Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity, pledged to continue our assistance, and started working toward the day we could return to Kyiv.

Now, that day has come. Today we are officially resuming operations at the U.S. Embassy in Kyiv. The Ukrainian people, with our security assistance, have defended their homeland in the face of Russia’s unconscionable invasion, and, as a result, the Stars and Stripes are flying over the Embassy once again. We stand proudly with, and continue to support, the government and people of Ukraine as they defend their country from the Kremlin’s brutal war of aggression.

As we take this momentous step, we have put forward additional measures to increase the safety of our colleagues who are returning to Kyiv and have enhanced our security measures and protocols.

We are committed to confronting the challenges ahead. The war rages on. Russia’s forces inflict death and destruction on Ukrainian soil every day. Millions of Ukrainians are displaced from their homes and mourn the loss of their loved ones. With strength of purpose, we reaffirm our commitment to the people and government of Ukraine, and we look forward to carrying out our mission from the U.S. Embassy in Kyiv.

About 17 Countries have sent diplomats back to their embassies in Kyiv: France, Italy, Turkey, Lithuania, Slovakia, Slovenia, the Czech Republic, Portugal, Belgium, Austria and a host of others!

Update: The Canadian flag is once again flying over Canada’s embassy in Kyiv. We raised it yesterday to symbolize the formal return of Canada’s diplomatic presence in Ukraine.

The Czech flag is flying again above the Czech Embassy in Kyiv. Our diplomats are back. This is one of the many steps we are taking to show our support for Ukraine flag. Czechia will always stand with Ukraine.

Czech MFA


Despite the resumption of Russian bombardments in kyiv and the threat of a nuclear strike, the French embassy has decided to return to the Ukrainian capital on Friday April 15.

Since Friday, April 15, in the afternoon, the French flag has been flying again in Kiev (Ukraine), in front of the French Embassy. A highly symbolic scene. “This means that France is once again present in Kiev, that the Ukrainian capital has not been conquered ~ Etienne de Poncins (French Ambassador to Ukraine)
