Israel’s diplomatic staff in Ukraine complete relocation from Kyiv to Lviv

Israel’s diplomatic staff in Ukraine on Tuesday completed a relocation from the capital, Kyiv, to Lviv in the country’s west.

Staff were told to make the move by Foreign Minister Yair Lapid due to fears of an all-out Russian invasion that would target the Ukrainian capital.

Israel’s diplomats in Ukraine have been working to convince the 15,000 Israelis in the country before the tensions to leave, but only around 3,100 have done so.
