Embassy staffers' families ordered out of Ukraine

The U.S. State Department today ordered the families of Americans stationed at the U.S Embassy in Kyiv, Ukraine out of the country.

Embassy personnel will remain and the embassy will stay open. The State Department said the action was taken due to heightened military buildup by Russia.

It also issued a Do Not Travel warning taking in both Covid and the possible military action

The U.K. is also withdrawing some embassy staff. It’s not the best time to be planning a holiday there. Hopefully things will ease.
