State Dept. Urges U.S. Citizens To Depart Ukraine Immediately After American’s Killing

The U.S. Government has repeated its call on all American citizens in Ukraine to depart immediately if it is safe to do so using any commercial or other privately available ground transportation options.

“We once again reiterate that U.S. citizens should not travel to Ukraine due to Russia’s full-scale invasion and active armed conflict,” the State Department said in a statement issued in the wake of Russian military returning the body of a young American who was killed in August while fighting alongside the Ukrainian military.

CNN reported that the Russian military handed over the body of 24-year-old Joshua Jones to Ukrainian custody in the Zaporizhzhia region on Wednesday.

State Department spokesman Ned Price said the remains of Jones “will soon be returned to the family.”

He said the United States is appreciative of Ukraine for including recovery of Jones’ remains in its negotiations with Russia.

Price warned that U.S. citizens who travel to Ukraine, including to participate in the fighting there, face significant risks and the United States cannot guarantee their safety. “We encourage U.S. citizens to devote their energies towards the many other opportunities that exist to help Ukraine and its people,” he added.

Jones is the latest among a number of Americans who have been captured or killed in Ukraine since Russia invaded that country in February.

Action Plan To Promote Cybersecurity In U.S. Chemical Sector

The leading chemical companies in the United States and the U.S. government’s lead agency for the chemical sector – the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Agency (CISA) – have agreed on a plan to promote a higher standard of cybersecurity across the sector, including capabilities that enable visibility and threat detection for industrial control systems.

The Chemical Action Plan will serve as a roadmap to guide the sector’s assessment of their current cybersecurity practices over the next 100 days, building on the lessons learned and best practices of the previously launched action plans for the electric, pipeline, and water sectors to meet the needs for this sector.

The Chemical Action Plan will Focus on high-risk chemical facilities that present significant chemical release hazards with the ultimate goal of supporting enhanced ICS cybersecurity across the entire chemical sector.

The Chemical Action Plan will drive information sharing and analytical coordination between the Federal Government and the chemical sector.

The majority of chemical companies in the U.S. are privately owned. The chemical sector produces and manufactures chemicals that are used directly or as building blocks in the everyday lives of Americans, from fertilizers and disinfectants to personal care products and energy sources.
