Previous envoy Jan Tombinski will assume office in Vatican
The EU's newly appointed ambassador to Ukraine Hughes Mingarelli will take his office in September, European Commissioner for European Neighbourhood Policy Johannes Hahn said during his press conference in Kyiv on Monday, July 11.
"I would like to say thank you to our Ambassador Jan Tombinski who is finishing his work in Ukraine," Hahn said. "Those were very difficult four years between 2012 and 2016."
The Commissioner added Tombinski's next office will be EU's diplomatic mission in Vatican.
"The new ambassador will be Hughes Mingarelli who is competent and well-informed [of the situation in Ukraine]. He will start working in September," Hahn noted.
