According to U.S. officials, the State Department has recently instructed families of the U.S. Embassy in Ukraine to evacuate the country by next week.
One official stated that the State Department will encourage Americans to leave Ukraine next week by encouraging them to fly commercially.
Moscow has gathered tens of thousands of troops along the border with Ukraine, raising fears about an invasion.
According to U.S. officials, small arms ammunition is the majority of the 200,000 pounds of lethal aid that the State Department calls “lethal aid” – which is needed by the Ukrainian soldiers fighting on the frontlines. Javelin antitank missiles will arrive from the Baltic States and U.S. military stockpiles in the early part of next week.
In Belarus, north Ukraine, advanced Russian fighter jets are now present. Another official said that the Pentagon is worried about Ukraine’s capital.
Although talks between Blinken, Sergei Lavrov, Russian Foreign Minister, failed to produce breakthroughs on Friday. However, both sides agreed that they would continue diplomatic negotiations. After the U.S. responds to Russian demands next week, the two diplomats will meet again.
