Biden Admin Warns It ‘Will Not Be In A Position To Evacuate U.S. Citizens’ From Ukraine

The Biden Administration has stated they do not have a clear plan of evacuating American citizens from a Russia-Ukraine invasion.

Facts

Democrat President Joe Biden’s administration has reportedly indicated that it will not evacuate U.S. citizens from Ukraine amid rapidly deteriorating conditions as Russia appears likely to invade at any moment.

On Sunday, the Biden administration ordered the families of all American personnel at the U.S. Embassy in Ukraine Sunday to immediately leave the country.

“The security conditions, particularly along Ukraine’s borders, in Russia-occupied Crimea, and Russia-controlled eastern Ukraine, are unpredictable and can deteriorate with little notice. Do not travel to Ukraine due to the increased threats of Russian military action and COVID-19. Exercise increased caution in Ukraine due to crime and civil unrest. Some areas have increased risks.”

On a call with reports Sunday night, a senior State Department official said, “military action by Russia could come at any time.” Adding “The United States government will not be in a position to evacuate U.S. citizens in such a contingency.”

The State Department’s decision is yet another indication of just how concerning the situation in Ukraine has become, as diplomatic efforts to halt a Russian invasion of Ukraine.

The Biden administration has also, in recent days, begun weighing deploying thousands of troops to NATO countries in the Baltics and Eastern Europe to thwart Russia further.

Details

A separate report on Sunday indicated that Biden was considering deploying U.S. forces to Eastern Europe in an apparent attempt not to appear weak. However, many experts warn that it is too little too late.

Biden’s is considering the deployment of “several thousand U.S. troops, as well as warships and aircraft, to NATO allies in the Baltics and Eastern Europe, an expansion of American military involvement amid mounting fears of a Russian incursion into Ukraine,” The New York Times reported. “The move would signal a major pivot for the Biden administration, which up until recently was taking a restrained stance on Ukraine, out of fear of provoking Russia into invading.”

The report said that senior military officials told Biden that he could deploy up to 5,000 U.S. troops to the region with the ability to ramp that number up “tenfold if things deteriorate.” Biden is expected to decide as early as this week about what course of action he will take.

“After years of tiptoeing around the question of how much military support to provide to Ukraine, for fear of provoking Russia, Biden officials have recently warned that the United States could throw its weight behind a Ukrainian insurgency should Putin invade Ukraine,” the report added. 

“And the deployment of thousands of additional American troops to NATO’s eastern flank, which includes Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania, Biden administration officials said, is exactly the scenario that Mr. Putin has wanted to avoid, as he has seen the western military alliance creep closer and closer to Russia’s own border.”

Over the weekend, the State Department elevated its travel advisory in Ukraine to “Level 4- Do Not Travel due to the increased threats of significant Russian military action against Ukraine.”

The State Department also added, “We want U.S. citizens in Ukraine to be aware, for their planning purposes, that Russian military action anywhere in Ukraine would severely impact the U.S. Embassy’s ability to provide consular services, including assistance to U.S. citizens in departing Ukraine.”

The Biden administration preemptively rejecting any evacuation requests from Ukraine comes after the administration abandoned hundreds of Americans in Afghanistan late last year.
