Reports of “unusual Russian military activity near Ukraine’s border and occupied Crimea” prompted the US Embassy in Ukraine to issue a warning to U.S. citizens living in Ukraine.
The statement explains that “Level 4 travel advice for Ukraine is still valid due to Russian occupying forces in Crimea, armed conflicts in the eastern parts of the Donetsk and Luhansk regions, and COVID-19, which applies to the entire country of Ukraine.
US citizens are reminded that border security conditions can be changed with little or no notice and that they should be careful. To obtain additional information, visit our website and our social media pages.” concludes the announcement of the US Embassy on the issue of Ukraine.
Apart from the announcement issued by the US Embassy in Ukraine, we recall that as we informed you about a week ago, the US Foreign Minister, Antony Blinken, stated about Ukraine:
“We are concerned about reports of unusual Russian military activity near the border with Ukraine. We are monitoring the situation very closely. As we always do, we will continue to communicate closely with our allies on this issue. As we have made clear, any aggressive action will cause great concern in the United States.”
In response, the Kremlin spokesman had said that Russia has never threatened anyone and that it is up to it what it does with its troops within its own borders.
