Hungary has moved its embassy in Ukraine from Lviv back to Kyiv, Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade Péter Szijjártó said in a video message on Facebook on Monday, according to a report by state news wire MTI.
Hungary temporarily moved the embassy to Lviv, in the west of Ukraine, early in March, after the start of the war in Ukraine, because of the deteriorating security situation.
Szijjártó said Hungary moved the embassy back at the weekend in light of the improving security situation, as the diplomatic corps of other European Union member states have done, too. Operating the diplomatic mission there "makes sense" as contact with Ukrainian government organizations can be maintained and assistance can be offered to citizens of Hungary or other EU countries, if necessary, he added.
Szijjártó posted the message from Ferenc Liszt International, before leaving for official visits to Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, and Uzbekistan.
