Newsline: U.S. sending diplomats back to embassy in Kyiv

The Biden administration is sending a group of American diplomats back to the U.S. Embassy in Kyiv to coincide with Russia’s Victory Day on May 9, when the country marks the defeat of Nazi Germany in World War II, four U.S. officials tell CBS News. The move is part of the U.S. effort to counteract Russian propaganda surrounding the conflict, which the U.S. expects to see from the Kremlin on May 9, another U.S. official tells CBS News. (https://www.cbsnews.com/news/ukraine-us-embassy-kyiv-diplomats-returning-russia-victory-day/) The diplomats’ return to the embassy is meant to underscore Russian President Vladimir Putin’s failure to capture the Ukrainian capital, even though his grinding war of attrition in the country’s south and east is now underway. State Department sources said the embassy hopes to resume operations at the embassy in Kyiv and raise the American flag there in the coming weeks.
