Biden to Nominate Bridget Brink as US Ambassador to Ukraine

Summary from the AllSides News Team

The White House has announced that President Joe Biden will nominate Bridget Brink as U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine.

Brink is a career foreign service officer who has had assignments in Cyprus, Georgia, Uzbekistan, and Serbia. She is currently the U.S. Ambassador to Slovakia. If approved by the Senate, she would become the top U.S. diplomat in Ukraine as the country continues to defend itself from Russia's invasion, which is approaching its third month as Russia reveals its plan to control southern Ukraine

Media from the right, left and center highlighted the fact that the U.S. has not had an ambassador in Ukraine since 2019, when Marie Yovanovitch was dismissed from the post by former President Donald Trump after reports that she was critical of him and blocking efforts to probe Hunter Biden's business dealings in Ukraine. Yovanovitch later accused Trump of a "smear campaign" after she was removed, and testified in Trump's 2019 impeachment hearings.
