Minister Lars Løkke Rasmussen stated, "Ukraine is still fighting for Europe's freedom and security.

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 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.
