Israeli diplomats, led by Ambassador to Ukraine Michael Brodsky, arrive in Kyiv to prepare for the reopening of Israel’s embassy there.

This is the first time that the ambassador and his team have been in Kyiv since the start of the Russian invasion on February 24.

The embassy staff was initially moved to the Western city of Lviv, and was then quickly relocated to the Polish border city of Przemysl, where they spent much of their time at the often chaotic border crossings helping Israel citizens flee the country.

It’s good to be back!
