The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine invalidated 225 diplomatic passports
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA) of Ukraine declared invalid more than 220 diplomatic passports that were not returned for storage. This is reported RIA News with reference to the publication “Strana.ua” blocked on the territory of Ukraine.
The department said that the repeated calls of people’s deputies to return the passports were ignored. 225 documents were declared invalid.
Earlier in August, the former Ukrainian ambassador to Germany, Andriy Melnyk, said that there was no date for his departure from Germany yet. Ukrainian leader Volodymyr Zelensky fired Melnyk as the country’s ambassador in July. It was reported that upon returning to his homeland, he would presumably take the post of deputy head of the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry.
