The British Prime Minister Boris Johnson told a conference in India that the United Kingdom would reopen its embassy in the Ukrainian capital, Kyiv, two months after it was closed before the Russian invasion.
Since the closure of the embassy, the UK has maintained a diplomatic presence in the country, but without the assistance of personal embassies.
The Foreign Ministry quoted the Guardian as saying that the embassy was being temporarily relocated and staffed from an office in Lviv, western Ukraine. It is now set to reopen early next month, after Russian forces were pushed back or withdrawn from the area around the capital.
The announcement comes after Boris Johnson met with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zhelensky earlier this month during an unannounced visit to Kiev.
