Madrid, Apr 22 (EFE).- Spain officially reopened its embassy in the Ukrainian capital Kyiv on Friday following a visit by prime minister Pedro Sánchez.
The Spanish embassy was temporarily shuttered on February 25, just hours after Russia launched its full-scale invasion of its smaller neighbor.
The diplomatic corps, led by Ambassador Silvia Cortés, and members of the Spanish security forces attended a reopening ceremony Friday to raise Spain’s national flag once again at the embassy grounds.
The move comes a day after Sánchez met Ukraine’s president Volodymyr Zelenskyy in Kyiv in a show of support against the Russian invasion.
During his visit, Sánchez announced that Spain was sending an additional 200 tons of military equipment to Kyiv.EFE
