The Australian government has decided to extend Australia’s diplomatic presence in Ukraine, preserving the country’s embassy in Kyiv for two years. “This will allow the official representatives of Australia to work together with their Ukrainian partners in close cooperation and for a further development of bilateral relations between the two countries,” reads a statement by the Australian Embassy in Ukraine. According to the report, the decision to extend the diplomatic presence of Australia in Ukraine was approved by Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull and Foreign Minister Julie Bishop last week. The release states that charge d’affaires of Australia in Ukraine Bruce Edwards will continue his work at the post, waiting for the expected appointment of a new Australian ambassador.
