The United States orders the families of its diplomats in the Ukrainian capital to leave citing what it calls “the threat of military action from Russia.”

In a statement, the State Department has also authorized the voluntary departure of its non-essential embassy staff from Kiev. Washington says all Americans should consider leaving the European country due to a continued Russian military threat to Ukraine. The statement calls on people to leave using all options available. The Department also warns US citizens NOT to travel to Russia. Washington had previously issued the highest-level travel advisory for Ukraine. It had also warned its citizen that they should not anticipate there would be US government-sponsored evacuations should a war take place in Ukraine.
