US Orders Diplomats' Families To Leave Ukraine Over Russia Threat

Washington:

The United States has ordered the families of its diplomats in the Ukrainian capital Kyiv to leave the country “due to the continued threat of Russian military action,” the State Department said Sunday.

Washington has also authorized the “voluntary” departure of its embassy employees, adding to tensions between Russia and the West over European security and concerns over a possible invasion by Moscow of Ukraine.
