Uzbekistan Embassy in Ukraine Returns to Kyiv

Uzbekistan announced it will resume its diplomatic mission in Kyiv, the capital of Ukraine after evacuating staff to Lviv city.

“We have resumed our work today (April 22),” Uzbekistan’s Foreign Ministry’s Spokesperson, Yusup Kabuljanov said.

Kabuljanov said that had shifted from Kyiv to Lviv in March and  “returned to our houses, to Kyiv.”

A number of countries, including the US, UK, European countries, and others have started withdrawing staff from their embassies in Kyiv following Russia’s invasion on February 24.

At least 15 other countries including the EU, France, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Estonia, Vatican, Moldova, Georgia, Iran, Kazakhstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, and Turkey had earlier announced the resumption of their diplomatic work back in Kyiv.

Russia’s deadly invasion of Ukraine was broadly condemned by the international community and was met with sanctions aimed to force Moscow to stop its brutal aggression.

The Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) said that 2,224 Ukrainian civilians lost their lives so far and 2,897 others were wounded.
