There is no longer a US diplomatic presence in Ukraine at this time, according to a US official familiar with the matter.
US diplomats had been spending their nights in Poland and their workdays in Lviv, western Ukraine, over the last few days. But after the Russian assault on Ukraine began Thursday the US diplomats did not go back into the country --- and there are no plans for them to do so anytime soon, the official said.
CNN has reached out to the State Department for comment.

“On February 24, 2022, the Department of State suspended consular operations in Lviv, Ukraine, following the suspension of consular services at the U.S. Embassy in Kyiv on February 12, 2022," according to the embassy's website.
