Newsline: US Reopens Embassy in Kyiv After Three Months

The US has reopened its embassy in Ukraine’s capital three months after shutting it down. “Today we are officially resuming operations at the US Embassy in Kyiv,” Secretary of State Blinken said in a statement. “The Ukrainian people, with our security assistance, have defended their homeland in the face of Russia’s unconscionable invasion, and, as a result, the Stars and Stripes are flying over the Embassy once again.” Blinken said “we have put forward additional measures to increase the safety of our colleagues who are returning to Kyiv.” (https://finance.yahoo.com/news/ukraine-latest-finland-sweden-hand-105700818.html) The decision to close the embassy in February had drawn criticism as sending a signal of doubt about Ukraine’s ability to hold out against the threatened Russian invasion that came soon after.
