Ukraine/Russia - Q&A (21 Feb. 2022)


Q: Is France conducting military and above all naval exercises in the Black Sea, and even in the Sea of Azov? And the Baltic Sea? Has there been any official Russian reaction? And finally, what’s the situation with the diplomatic and consular posts in Ukraine? Will the embassy in Ukraine go to Lviv?

A: Our embassy is at work in Kyiv and is constantly in touch with our compatriots and the Ukrainian authorities. It’s ready to face any eventuality. On the security situation for French people, please consult the travel advice on the France Diplomacy website, updated on Saturday.

On issues relating to our military deployments, I refer you to the Ministry for the Armed Forces.
