Spain not planning to evacuate embassy staff from Kyiv

At present, Spain has no plans to evacuate its embassy staff and their family members from Kyiv.

Minister of Foreign Affairs, European Union and Cooperation of Spain, José Manuel Albares Bueno, said this during a telephone conversation with his Ukrainian counterpart Dmytro Kuleba, Ukrinform reports with reference to the press service of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine.

The conversation took place in the context of consolidating international pressure on the Russian Federation to deter it from further aggression.

Kuleba briefed Spain’s minister on the security situation amid the Russian military build-up near the state border and in the territories temporarily occupied by Russia. He also focused on the non-military dimensions of Russian aggression, including Russia's attempts to shatter Ukraine's economic and financial stability.

José Manuel Albares Bueno assured of Spain's full support for Ukraine's efforts to restore its sovereignty and territorial integrity by political and diplomatic means.

In this context, the ministers coordinated steps to negotiate with Russia in the framework of network diplomacy, which aims to keep the Russian Federation in line with diplomatic negotiations and force it to de-escalate.
