US State Department Urges Citizens to Leave from Ukraine

Washington - United States Department of State urged all Americans in Ukraine to leave the country. The reason is, the Russian military may launch a very dangerous attack this week to mark Ukraine's Independence Day.

The US State Department issued a security alert saying Russian strikes were expected to hit civilian and government targets over the coming days around the holiday on Wednesday.

The U.S. Embassy said in a statement: "The State Department has information that Russia is stepping up efforts to launch attacks on civilian infrastructure and government facilities of Ukraine in the coming days."

US officials say Russian forces have stationed more warships in the Black Sea off Ukraine's southern coast. Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said on Saturday that Russian troops might try to do something "very cruel" this week.

He called on the international community to come to the negotiating table to defuse tensions and end the nuclear arms race, once and for all. Guterres also said the future of humanity is in our hands at this "time of maximum danger". He called for a shared commitment to dialogue and outcomes at the Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant, where the fighting has raised concerns among nuclear leaders and experts.

Guterres said he supported the International Atomic Energy Agency's (IAEA) mission to visit the plant, which is Europe's largest nuclear power facility. Russia's war in Ukraine will enter its seventh month on Wednesday. On Tuesday, Ukrainian officials reported new attacks on Dnipro in the south-central part of the country and the port city of Mariupol. Dnipro Mayor Borys Filatov warned residents on social media to take cover before dawn.
