Foreign Μinistry ΟΚ’s Evacuation of Greek Embassy in Kyiv

February 25, 2022

ATHENS – The Foreign Affairs Ministry approved the evacuation of Greece’s embassy in the Ukrainian capital city Kiev on Friday, following the ambassador’s request to that effect.

The ambassador requested it “due to the rapid deterioration of the security situation in Kiev,” the ministry noted in its announcement.

The departure of embassy staff and any Greek citizens wanting to leave will be carried out by road, added the ministry, noting that the Greek consulates in Mariupol and Odessa will remain operational until further notice.


ATHENS - A deadly earthquake in Turkey, a deadly train collision in Greece and both Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis and President Recep Tayyip Erdogan facing tough re-election challenges in May elections has brought a caesura in tensions - for now.
