Breaking: Immediate Evacuation Ordered


( – BREAKING NOW: The administration of President Joe Biden has ordered the immediate evacuation of the United States Embassy in Ukraine.

According to the Wall Street Journal, personnel at the embassy have also been ordered to destroy all computers and the telephone system before evacuating as a means of protecting secret information in possession of the embassy.

According to CNBC:

“Secretary of State Antony Blinken on Monday ordered the U.S. Embassy in Kyiv closed and directed embassy staff to relocate to Lviv, a city in western Ukraine, citing the ‘dramatic acceleration in the buildup of Russian forces’ on Ukraine’s border.

“‘We are in the process of temporarily relocating our Embassy operations in Ukraine from our Embassy in Kyiv to Lviv due to the dramatic acceleration in the buildup of Russian forces,’ Blinken said in a statement.

“‘I have ordered these measures for one reason — the safety of our staff — and we strongly urge any remaining U.S. citizens in Ukraine to leave the country immediately,’ said Blinken.”

The evacuation and destruction of equipment that may soon fall into Russian hands come just as the President of Ukraine, Volodymyr Zelensky, announced on Facebook that Russia would launch an attack on the country on Wednesday.
