It is not true that the US has closed its diplomatic offices in Ukraine.

The allegations come from the Facebook account of Prof. Mikhail Mirchev, Ph.D., Professor of Sociology in the Department of Political Science at the UNWE. In 2020 the Sofia University “St. Kliment Ohridski” terminated the civil contract of Mirchev, after a decision of the Ethics Committee of the University due to a signal from students.

The US embassy in Ukraine, as well as the consulate in Odessa, have not been closed. Both institutions continue to provide support to American citizens who are in the troubled country. The U.S. Embassy in Ukraine responded in a letter to that diplomatic activities are “limited,” but not suspended entirely. “Ambassador Bridget Brink and her team are on the ground in Kiev and continue to work….,” the US diplomatic service in Kiev wrote.

PolitiCheck: No forced change of names of Bulgarians in Ukraine as Kostadin Kostadinov claims

The Constitution of Ukraine, adopted in 1996, establishes Ukrainian as the sole official language of the country. Thus, Ukrainian legislation requires the spelling of names in personal documents of each citizen to be according to the rules of the only official language in the country which is Ukrainian. There is no intentional discrimination towards Bulgarians or any other national or linguistic minority in Ukraine.
