Ukraine has no plans to appoint an ambassador to Russia in the near future. This was reported by Ukranews news agency with reference to Ukraine's Foreign Ministry’s response to the request.

"It is not planned to fill the vacant position of the head of Ukraine’s diplomatic office in the Russian Federation at the moment," the statement said.

Ukraine's MFA earlier stated that Ukraine had been approving candidatures for 13 of 19 countries where they were not appointed. However, there was no specific information on the list of countries.

"There were no requests for aggregation from the Russian side to Ukraine's Ministry of Foreign Affairs," the message reads.

As we reported earlier, according to Sergei Lavrov, the Russian Foreign Minister, the Kremlin is ready to exchange ambassadors with Ukraine. Rossiyskaya Gazeta reported that on February 10.

"It seems someone mentioned Zelensky's possible decision to return the ambassadors. We do not mind," Lavrov said.

It is worth noting that Ukraine and Russia recalled their ambassadors for consultations in 2014. And in 2018, Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine passed the law that ceased the Agreement on Friendship, Cooperation, and Partnership between Ukraine and the Russian Federation.
