State Department announced temporary relocation of U.S diplomats in Ukraine

According to the secretary of state Antony Blinken, the U.S embassy will temporarily move from the capital of Kyiv to the city of Lviv because of the  dramatic expansion of Russian forces along Ukraine’s borders.

”The Embassy will remain engaged with the Ukrainian government, coordinating diplomatic engagement in Ukraine. We are also continuing our intensive diplomatic efforts to deescalate the crisis” Blinken said.

The State Departement’s spokesperson Ned Price expressed their gratefulness to the National Police of Ukraine for guarding the embassy and following the diplomat’s departure. ”U.S officials are planned to return to the Kyiv embassy just as soon as it is safe for us to do so” Price finished.
