The Embassy of Ukraine in London is the diplomatic mission of Ukraine in the United Kingdom.[1] Ukraine also maintains a Consulate at 78 Kensington Park Road, Notting Hill.[2]

History[edit]

Diplomatic mission of the Ukrainian People's Republic arrived in London in May 1919. At first it occupied premises at 38 Kensington Mansions, Trebovir Road, London SW5. In October 1919 moved to 75 Cornwall Gardens, London SW7. The Ukrainian mission was not officially recognised by the British government. Its main objective was to secure British recognition for the Ukrainian People's Republic.

The United Kingdom recognised the independence of Ukraine on 31 December 1991. Diplomatic relations were established on 10 January 1992 and the embassy of Ukraine in the UK was opened in October 1992. The first ambassador of Ukraine in the UK was Serhiy Komisarenko.
