News Desk: The European Union has reopened its embassy in Kiev, the capital of Ukraine. The embassy in Poland was temporarily relocated after Russia invaded the country.

EU foreign policy chief Joseph Borel announced the reopening of the embassy during a visit to Ukraine on Friday.

After talks with Ukrainian Prime Minister Denis Schmihal, Joseph Borel said they were quickly preparing for the next EU-Ukraine Association Council.

Matty Masikas, head of the European delegation to Ukraine, posted a picture. The European Union flag was seen flying outside the Kiev embassy.

Italy has also expressed its desire to open an embassy in the capital Kiev soon. Foreign Minister Luigi de Maio confirmed the information on Saturday.

Meanwhile, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson paid a surprise visit to the war-torn country to meet with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. He also met with Zelensky in the capital, Kiev.

The news came after a photo of the meeting between the two leaders was posted on Twitter by the Ukrainian embassy in Britain.

However, a Downing Street spokesman confirmed the meeting, saying the two leaders discussed long-term financial and military assistance between the two countries. Boris Johnson also expressed solidarity with the people of Ukraine.
