US Flag Raised at Embassy in Kyiv as Operations Resume.

The U.S. embassy in Kyiv reopened on May 18, 2022, after a three-month closure prompted by Russia's February 24 invasion of Ukraine.

"We are officially reopening operations," spokesperson Daniel Langenkamp told Reuters shortly before the U.S. flag was raised above the embassy.

He said a small number of diplomats would return initially to staff the mission.

Consular operations will not resume immediately and a no-travel advisory from the State Department remains in place across Ukraine, Langenkamp said.
