My team and I are closely monitoring the situation in Ukraine. The U.S. Department of State has issued a level 4 Travel Advisory and urges all U.S. citizens to leave the country immediately.
U.S. citizens planning to depart Ukraine should consult the Department of State guidance on how to cross land borders when departing Ukraine. The Department of State has stationed support teams near the Ukrainian border in Romania, Hungary, Slovakia, and Moldova to provide assistance to U.S. citizens, and have opened a Welcome Center for U.S. citizens in Poland.
For Tennesseans needing assistance:
- U.S. citizens seeking emergency assistance in Ukraine should complete this online form or call 1-833-741-2777 (in the United States) or 1-606-260-4379 (from overseas) for immediate assistance.
- U.S. citizens who decide to remain in Ukraine and who do not depart immediately as advised, should also complete this online form so that the State Department may better communicate with you.
If you need further assistance, my office is standing by to help:
