BRUSSELS – Jan Tombinski is to replace Head of the EU Delegation to Ukraine Jose Manuel Pinto Teixeira.
EU High Representative for Foreign and Security Policy, Vice-President of the European Commission Catherine Ashton made a relevant decision, according to the press service of the European Commission.

The replacement will take place due to a staff turnover.

Ashton appointed 15 new heads and two deputy heads of the EU Delegations around the world.

Teixeira, in turn, was appointed head of the EU Delegation in Cape Verde.

At the moment, Tombinski heads the mission of Poland to the European Union. He was appointed to this post in February 2007. From 2001 until 2007 he worked as ambassador of Poland to France.

Tombinski was born on October 4, 1958 in Krakow. He is a linguist by education. Tombinski is married and has ten children. He speaks German, English, French, Slovenian, and Czech.
