State Dept: “We've authorised the departure of some US government employees, but we have ordered the departure of all family members of US government employees at our Embassy in Kiev. The State Department has also elevated our travel advisory for Ukraine to level four.”

President Joe Biden is considering deploying thousands of troops, in addition to aircraft and warships, to NATO allies across Eastern Europe and the Baltics as tensions mount on the Russia-Ukraine border, administration officials reportedly told The New York Times.
The United States sent more than 80 tons of military equipment costing $200 million to Ukraine over the weekend, the country’s Defence Minister Oleksii Reznikov said on Sunday.
That day, the U.S. Embassy in Ukraine ordered the evacuation of diplomats’ families, while other employees were given authorization to voluntarily leave.
Biden had a meeting with senior Pentagon officials at Camp David on Saturday to discuss several military options for Ukraine, The New York Times reports. One option is to deploy 1,000 to 5,000 U.S. troops to Eastern European countries, with the ability to increase service members tenfold if needed.
A recent poll found only 15.3% of Americans support Military action in Ukraine – Biden doesn’t care.
