An Israeli delegation led by Ambassador Michael Brodsky is due to visit Kyiv this week as Jerusalem weighs reopening its embassy in the Ukrainian capital, a Foreign Ministry official confirms to The Times of Israel.

Israel shuttered the embassy in Kyiv and moved the mission to Lviv in western Ukraine on the eve of Russia’s invasion on February 24. On the second day of the war, it was transferred from Lviv to a hotel on the Polish border city of Przemysl.
