Peace Corps Ukraine Volunteers Evacuated Safely

February 24, 2014

WASHINGTON, D.C., February 24, 2014 – The Peace Corps today announced that all Peace Corps Ukraine volunteers are safe and accounted for, and have been successfully evacuated out of the country. The agency will continue to assess the safety and security climate in Ukraine. And while the Peace Corps hopes volunteers can return, the safety and security of its volunteers are the agency’s top priority.

Over 200 Peace Corps Ukraine volunteers were working in the areas of education and youth and community development. Volunteers will participate in a transition conference this week. Since the program was established in 1992, over 2,740 Peace Corps volunteers have served in Ukraine.
