The US ordered the families of its personnel working in the embassy in Ukraine to leave the country

Washington: The US State Department on Sunday ordered the families of all US personnel working at the US embassy in Ukraine to leave the country amid growing threats of Russian aggression. The ministry advised dependents of US embassy personnel in Kiev that they should leave the country. He also said that non-essential personnel working in the embassy can leave the country at government expense.

The US government has taken this step at a time when tensions have increased due to increasing Russian military presence on the Ukrainian border. US Secretary of State Antony Blinken and Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov held talks on Friday to ease tensions, but to no avail. State Department officials said the embassy in Kiev would remain open and the announcement did not mean the evacuation of US officials from Ukraine. He said the move was being discussed for a long time and it does not mean that the US is reducing its support for Ukraine.

Earlier, the US and Russia tried to defuse the escalating tension in the standoff over Ukraine, but both said that there was no achievement in the high-level talks on Friday to stop a possible Russian aggression. US Secretary of State Antony Blinken and Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov met in Geneva for about an hour and a half to discuss the exact opposite demands. America is calling it a ‘critical moment’. But neither side could move a single step towards a solution.

Blinken said the United States and its allies were firm on rejecting most of Russia’s demands. However, Blinken told Lavrov that the US would give a written response to Russia’s proposals next week. He said that after some time there could be talks between them again. The gathering of some 100,000 Russian soldiers near Ukraine has led many to suspect that Russia is preparing for an attack. However, Russia denies this. The United States and its allies are mobilizing to prevent Russia from doing so or to retaliate strongly for doing so.
