US asks its citizens to leave Ukraine immediately

AT News

Kabul: The US government is urging Americans in Ukraine to leave the country immediately, warning that Russia is stepping up efforts to launch attacks on civilian infrastructure and government facilities ahead of Ukrainian Independence Day.

“The US Embassy urges US citizens to depart Ukraine now using privately available ground transportation options if it is safe to do so,” a security alert on the embassy’s website said. “The security situation throughout Ukraine is highly volatile and conditions may deteriorate without warning.”

Ukraine’s government also warned citizens to be “especially careful” on Tuesday and Wednesday.

“There is an increased threat of missile attacks and other provocations — both inside the country and outside,” said Andrii Yusov, a spokesperson for the Defense Intelligence service of Ukraine’s Ministry of Defense.

Tensions in the war spiked this week with the death of Darya Dugina, a Russian political commentator and the daughter of prominent ultranationalist ideologue Alexander Dugin.

Russia has blamed Ukrainian special services for her killing, according to Russian state news agency TASS.

“The murder of journalist Darya Dugina has been solved, it was prepared by the Ukrainian special services, by a citizen of Ukraine,” TASS reported, citing Russia’s Federal Security Service (FSB), which named a woman as the perpetrator and said she had fled to Estonia after the attack.

Dugina, the editor of a Russian disinformation website, died after a bomb planted in a car she was driving went off on the outskirts of Moscow on Saturday evening.

Dugina’s father, Alexander Dugin, is a prominent Russian nationalist credited with being the “spiritual guide” among many Russian people.
