The Ministry of Foreign Affairs reported on Tuesday night (17) that the Brazilian ambassador to Ukraine, Norton de Andrade Mello Rapesta, was instructed to return to the Ukrainian capital, Kyiv.

Since the beginning of March, Rapesta was working from Moldova, country where he is also the Brazilian ambassador. Ukraine was invaded by Russian troops in 24 of February.

In the note, the Itamaraty highlighted that the Brazilian Embassy in Kyiv has remained open since the beginning of the conflict and that since then about 80 Brazilians were assisted by the ministry in the region, “especially for issuing documents and crossing the border”.

The Itamaraty pointed out that the consular service posts that had been temporarily installed in the cities of Chisinau (Moldova) , Kosice (Slovakia), Lviv and Chernivtsi (Ukraine) were closed after the evacuation of Brazilians wishing to leave Ukraine.

“Itamaraty remains attentive to the evolution of the conflict and is ready to resume any emergency measures to assist Brazilian citizens who make necessary. Reinforcing the recommendation that Brazilian citizens not enter Ukrainian territory, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs notes that the consular duty can be contacted by the telephone number +20 41 2000-380”, concluded the folder.
