Sounds good and I'd actually like to give Biden credit for this one but that assumes we actually open our embassy in Ukraine and send an ambassador to it. This would demonstrate our resolve to support Ukraine and send a signal to Putin that we are committed and in this for the duration. Unfortunately my opinion is this is little more than PR and this lady will never be stationed in Ukraine. I hope I'm wrong.




"President Biden on Monday has nominated Bridget Brink -- the current U.S. Ambassador to Slovakia -- to be the U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine.

State Department spokesman Ned Price said earlier Monday that Brink’s “decades of experience make her uniquely suited for this moment in Ukraine’s history.”


 
I don’t understand the purpose of this. Brink has spent a lot of years in the State Department but she’s only been an ambassador since 2019. Ukraine has had an acting ambassador for two years so why isn’t that person being elevated to ambassador?

Good question. I don't have an answer.
