Story Highlights

  • The U.S. ordered family members at its embassy in Kyiv to leave “due to the continued threat of Russian military action,” signaling a further turn of the screw in the standoff over Ukraine.

The tension follows U.S.-Russian talks last week that failed to open a conclusive path to ending the standoff.
