Blinken Says Risk of Russian Invasion High Enough to Justify U.S. Embassy Drawdown

HONOLULU (Reuters) – U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken mentioned on Saturday the danger of Russian army motion in Ukraine is excessive and imminent sufficient to justify the departure of a lot of the employees at U.S. embassy in Kyiv, which the State Division introduced earlier.

Talking at a information convention in Honolulu, the place he met together with his Japanese and South Korean counterparts, Blinken reiterated that the diplomatic path with Russia over Ukraine remained open and the best way to pursue that was for Moscow to de-escalate.
