Situation is getting worse in Ukraine border. International efforts to defuse the standoff over Ukraine intensified with French President Emmanuel Macron holding talks in Moscow and German Chancellor Olaf Scholz in Washington to coordinate policies as fears of a Russian invasion mounted.
In the meantime, US President Joe Biden said, it would be wise for Americans other than essential diplomats to leave Ukraine amid the Russian military threat. Biden made his comments during a joint press conference with German Chancellor Olaf Scholz at the White House. The State Department has already authorized nonessential employees to leave and has called on all family members of diplomats in Ukraine to do so.
