Project Announcement: Audit of the Disposition of Defensive Equipment and Armored Vehicles in Advance of Evacuations at U.S. Embassies Kabul and Kyiv

    Notice Contents

    The Department evacuated personnel from Embassy Kyiv and suspended operations after Russia’s further invasion of Ukraine on February 28, 2022. The embassy was partially reopened in May 2022 when Russian ground troops retreated from around Kyiv. This audit, which will address the evacuations of Embassy Kyiv and Embassy Kabul, will determine whether the embassies managed, safeguarded, and disposed of sensitive security assets in advance of the evacuation and suspension of operations at each post in accordance with Department guidance. OIG will also review security challenges encountered upon reopening Embassy Kyiv.
