The Canadian Embassy in Ukraine moved from Kiev

Services will be provided in a temporary office in another city.

On January 12, Minister of Foreign Affairs of Canada Melanie Joly issued a statement in which she said that the Canadian embassy in Ukraine had temporarily changed its address.

"Given the deteriorating security situation caused by the concentration of Russian troops on the border with Ukraine, we are moving all our operations to a temporary office in Lviv and temporarily suspending the work of our embassy in Kiev," Joly said.

The minister added that Canada would continue its diplomatic presence in Ukraine and actively participate in the settlement of relations between Russia and Ukraine. The embassy in Lviv will provide services for Canadian citizens by appointment, but consular assistance options will be limited.

Melanie Joly called on Canadians to avoid traveling to Ukraine and for those who are there now to leave immediately. Earlier, the government removed non-essential embassy workers from the country. According to the minister, the embassy in Kiev will resume its work when it is completely safe.

A government website with travel advisories also advises avoiding trips to Ukraine:
