The Indian embassy in Ukraine, which was “temporarily” working out of Polish capital Warsaw since March 13, will return to Kyiv from May 17, the Ministry of External Affairs announced in New Delhi on Friday.
Last month, U.K. Prime Minister Boris Johnson during a tour to India had announced that U.K. would reopen its embassy in Kyiv.
India appointed Harsh Kumar Jain as the new envoy of India to Ukraine after the embassy was temporarily shifted. Mr. Jain submitted his credentials to Deputy Foreign Minister of Ukraine Dmytro Senik on May 2. Mr. Jain replaced Partha Satpathy who had played a leading role in the evacuation of Indian students from Kharkiv, Kyiv and other major cities. Many countries had shifted embassies to Lviv and neighbouring Poland.
