Denmark reopened its embassy in the Ukrainian capital of Kyiv during Danish Foreign Minister Jeppe Kofod’s visit to the city on Monday.
According to Denmark’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Koford had the honor of raising his country’s flag to commemorate the reopening.
The Danish Embassy in Kyiv was immediately closed upon the beginning of the Russian invasion of Ukraine back in February.
Kofod also met with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy while in Ukraine, “You have been such an inspiration to people all over the world. Fighting for our common rights and values and setting a strong example for your country. Denmark stands side by side with you,” said Kofod in a tweet.
Danish Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen also announced an additional $85 million in military aid to Ukraine.
Denmark is the first Nordic country to reopen an embassy in Ukraine.
