It is noted that Betsa will "for a certain time" continue to hold the post of MFA Ukraine's spokesperson. She has already been appointed an ambassador, while her credentials had not yet been received by the Estonian authorities.

"In any case, she continues to work as a spokesperson," sources noted.

Betsa has been the Ministry's spokesperson since 2015.
