The Indian embassy in Ukraine, which had been shut shortly after Russia launched a "special military operation", will reopen shortly in Kyiv, according to India’s foreign ministry.  

In a communique Friday, the foreign ministry said, "The Indian Embassy in Ukraine, which was temporarily operating out of Warsaw (Poland), would be resuming its operation from Kyiv wef 17 May 2022", NDTV reports.

The embassy operations in Kyiv had shut down in early March after Russian shelling intensified days after the February 24 offensive. On March 13, the embassy had relocated to Warsaw after most Indian nationals were evacuated from Ukraine.
