The U.S. State Department has suspended consular services at the U.S. Embassy in Kyiv and provided additional guidance to U.S. citizens in Ukraine.
Background: On Jan. 23, the State Department authorized the voluntary departure of U.S. direct hire employees and ordered the departure of family members from the U.S. Embassy in Kyiv, amid rising tensions between Ukraine and Russia. On Feb. 12, the State Department amended its previous authorization of voluntary departure and ordered the departure of most U.S. direct hire employees.
BAL Analysis: The situation in Ukraine may change with little or no notice and companies with employees in the country are encouraged to follow State Department information and warnings closely.
