NATO sends more ships, fighter jets to Eastern Europe as Russia masses troops on Ukraine border

NATO said Monday it would send additional ships and fighter jets to Eastern Europe as Britain ordered some diplomats and their families to leave Ukraine, amid growing alarm that Russia may invade as it amasses tens of thousands of troops near the border. The moves came after the United States Sunday ordered families of diplomats to leave Kyiv and authorized non-essential diplomatic staff to leave. The State Department also cautioned American citizens to consider leaving Ukraine, with U.S. officials warning that an attack could happen “at any time.”
