"Anton Denysovych Buteyko died a few hours ago. Bright man. Outstanding diplomat. Statesman. Patriot. There are few like him. If there were a lot, we would have lived in a prosperous Ukraine for a long time. Others will learn from his diplomatic experience if they want to go down in their country's history," Ogrysko wrote on Twitter on March 10, 2019.

Buteyko began his diplomatic career in 1974. From 1995 to 1998, he served as First Deputy Foreign Minister of Ukraine. From 1998 to 1999, he was Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of Ukraine to the United States. He had served as Ambassador at Large of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine since 2000.

Until September 2003, Buteyko was Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of Ukraine to Romania. He resigned in protest against the signing of an agreement on the Single Economic Space with the Russian Federation.
