Amid rising military and political tensions in Ukraine, five countries - the United States, the UK, Germany, Canada and Australia - have announced the decision to evacuate some of their diplomats and their families from Ukraine. Foreign minister of Ukraine Dmytro Kuleba said only four embassies of the 129 diplomatic missions in Ukraine - the United States, Britain, Germany and Australia- had informed of the decision to evacuate their staff. The decision was later announced by the Canadian Foreign Ministry.
According to TASS, sources of the Japanese Kyodo reported that the Japanese government is also considering the need to evacuate its citizens from Ukraine, including embassy staff.
According to TASS, the Ukrainian Foreign Minister considers the decision of these countries premature. According to the Ukrainian authorities, there are no real grounds for that.
