Greece reopens its Embassy in kyiv after almost three months of closure


The Greek authorities announced on Tuesday the reopening of its Embassy in kyiv after almost three months of closure as a result of the Russian invasion of Ukraine, so the diplomatic missions will resume their services in the country.

Embassy staff left kyiv shortly after the start of the war on February 24 and went to the Greek Consulate in eastern Ukraine, where some 150,000 people of Greek origin reside, according to information from the newspaper ‘Kathimerini’.

Manolis Androulakism, who previously served as the consul general of Mariupol, will be in charge of the diplomatic legation. Androulakism was the last diplomat from the European Union to leave the coastal city last March.

Thus, he has compared the bombing of the city to that of other locations, such as Stalingrad, in Russia, or Aleppo, in Syria. “Mariúpol will join the list of cities in the world that have been completely destroyed by war, such as Guernica, Stalingrad, Grozny or Aleppo,” he said at a press conference.

Athens has called on members of the Greek community in Ukraine to leave the country as soon as possible. “We have tried to expatriate as many people as we can,” she said. “Heroes are those who stay and try to start their lives from scratch,” she added.
