Ukraine criticizes US decision to withdraw relatives of diplomats

Ukraine described as “premature” and “excessive” the decision of the United States to withdraw the families of its diplomats from the country, for fear of a Russian invasion.

“Always respecting the right of foreign states to ensure the security of their diplomatic missions, we consider this US measure to be premature” and “excessive,” Kiev Foreign Ministry spokesman Oleg Nikolenko said in a statement.
