US Embassy in Ukraine asks diplomatic staff to be evacuated

As reported by CNN, Sunday (23/1/2022), the Embassy (Embassy) United States of America in Ukraine asked the Ministry of Foreign Affairs to allow all non-essential staff to leave Ukraine immediately. But a State Department spokesman said it could not announce an evacuation at this time.

“We carry out strict contingency planning, as we always do, should the security situation deteriorate.” he responded and referred CNN to the State Department in Washington to confirm the news.

CNN quoted a source close to the Ukrainian government as saying the United States had informed Ukraine that it was “likely to begin evacuations as early as next week” for the families of diplomats in the capital Kiev.

The source said Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky had spoken to US Secretary of State Antony Blinken about the matter. But Zelensky said if the United States took such a dramatic step it would be an “overreaction.”

A State Department official said the department would not comment on private discussions the sources cited. It added that decisions about overseas staff are based on one criterion: the safety and security of Americans.

“If there is a decision to change our stance with respect to American diplomats and their families, Americans should not anticipate that there will be a US government-sponsored evacuation. Currently, commercial flights are available to support departures,” the spokesman said.
