Denmark opens new embassy office in Mykolaiv


Denmark has taken patronage for the reconstruction of Mykolaiv and has launched next step of Denmark’s support for Ukraine. Today at the informal EU Foreign Ministers meeting, the Danish Minister of Foreign Affairs Lars Løkke Rasmussen announces the opening of a new Danish embassy office in the city of Mykolaiv.

”We must do what it takes to support Ukraine. Early reconstruction is needed now and cannot wait for the war to end. We are opening an embassy office in Mykolaiv to strengthen our presence on the ground and our dialogue with local authorities. The embassy office is a clear example of our close partnership with the city and region of Mykolaiv”, says the Danish Minister of Foreign Affairs.

The tasks of the embassy office will include close dialogue with regional and local authorities. Ukrainian needs for reconstruction will be matched with competences and know-how of Danish civil society organisations and businesses within areas like water, energy and waste management.

Before Russia’s illegal full-scale invasion of Ukraine in 2022, Mykolaiv was the home for approx. 500.000 citizens. Russia’s continued attacks have forced citizens to flee. It is estimated that 230.000 citizens remain in Mykolaiv.

The venue of Denmark’s new embassy office has been found and a Danish diplomat leading the office has been appointed. The embassy will soon launch vacancies for local staff. When the embassy is fully operational, the Danish Minister of Foreign Affairs will officially open the office.

The embassy office in Mykolaiv works under the instruction of the Royal Danish Embassy in Kyiv. Together, the embassy office and the Royal Danish Embassy in Kyiv constitute Denmark’s diplomatic presence in Ukraine.

Issued by: United States, Japan, Germany, France, United Kingdom, Italy, India, Republic of Korea, Spain, Australia, Netherlands, Switzerland, Belgium, Denmark, and New Zealand The G20 Independent Review of Multilateral Development Banks’ (MDB) Capital Adequacy Frameworks (G20 CAF Review) provided thoughtful recommendations for boosting MDB financial capacity by stretching existing resources and pursuing innovative measures. The G20 Presidencies of Italy, Indonesia, and India were all key to launching and driving forward the G20 CAF Review. The implementation of several of its recommendations by the MDBs has already generated significant additional MDB financing capacity. In a strong demonstration of our support for the MDBs[1], shareholders have collectively committed a combined $796 billion in callable capital to these institutions, which can be drawn on or “called” in the extremely remote scenario that an MDB is unable to meet its financial obligations.
