Belgium will reopen its embassy in Kieu, the capital of Ukraine, from mid-July. The embassy was closed from March 1 after Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

Belgium follows the example of other European countries that have already reopened their embassies in Kieu. Next month, the Belgian diplomatic team will be the first to return to work. After that, the local staff will gradually follow up.

“The resumption will allow closer contact with Ukrainian authorities, especially in the context of security and Ukraine’s application for EU accession,” member states said.

According to Prime Minister Alexander de Crew (Open VLD), the reopening of the door by the Belgian embassy is “an important signal of resilience and support for Ukrainians.” However, “it is also important from the perspective of reconstruction, where Belgian companies also play a role to play.”

Since the embassy closed, the Belgian embassy in Poland has been the contact point for Belgian citizens residing in Ukraine.
