The newly appointed US ambassador to Ukraine has arrived in Kyiv and is ready to start serving at the embassy. Information about Brink and her arrival in Ukraine appeared on the US embassy website. The Guardian reports that Bridget Brink will present her credentials to Volodymyr Zelensky this week.
"Honored to join our fantastic team at US embassy Kyiv as we stand with Ukraine," Bridget Brink commented on her arrival in Ukraine.
There was no US ambassador in Ukraine for 3 years. The last diplomat, Marie Yovanovitch, was recalled by president Trump over a scandal over his pressure on president Zelenskyy. This drama was the reason for his first impeachment.
We remind you that on April 25, president Joe Biden appointed Bridget Brink as the new ambassador to Ukraine, and on May 18, the US embassy returned to Kyiv.
