Evacuation of U.S. Embassy Staff in Kyiv: Security Operation against Multiple Threats

Among the many developments and events surrounding recent tensions between Russia and Ukraine, an interesting issue surfaced that is relevant to security officers and experts in the field.

According to reports in the media, the U.S. closed its embassy in Kyiv, Ukraine's capital, and moved its diplomatic staff to Lviv, a western city near the border with Poland.

The security teams at the U.S. embassy are running a complex security operation that involves protecting the embassy staff and making sure that classified information and technologies are not compromised during the move. According to some reports, the U.S. State Department has instructed the security officer at the embassy to destroy networking equipment and computer workstations, and dismantle phone systems before leaving the building.

Meanwhile, U.S. security experts stay alert to a possible Russian invasion of Ukraine.
