Unvaccinated Americans Stuck in Ukraine

Feb 15, 2022

Joe Biden’s State Department told Americans they “must present” proof of COVID shots if they want to leave Ukraine!

On Sunday, the U.S. State Department suspended ALL consular services in Kyiv, Ukraine’s capital. Then Biden also said he will NOT send in soldiers to help Americans evacuate.

Are we seeing a redo of Afghanistan where Americans will be knowingly left behind, but this time it’s because of their “vaccination” status?

The State Department needs to hear an urgent message from you right now! Demand they stop holding Americans hostage over a Vaccine Passport in what could instantly become a bloody war zone!

I need as many people as possible to send a fax to the State Department, to leaders and members of Congress to IMMEDIATELY REVERSE DEMAND FOR THESE “VACCINE PASSPORTS” NOW! — Mat

Russia and Belarus are actively engaged in “war games” with a massive number of troops less than 200 miles away from the capital of Ukraine. The games are scheduled to continue until Feb 20. These two countries surround three sides of Ukraine, and reports indicate Russia has 130,000 troops on the Ukraine border.

A report came out from the State Department on Saturday urging that “U.S. citizens should not travel to Ukraine, and those in Ukraine should depart immediately using commercial or other privately available transportation options.”

However, shockingly, the State Department tells those fleeing that “U.S. citizens must present a valid U.S. passport and proof of COVID-19 vaccination.

If an American flew from here to Poland, they could enter, test and quarantine for seven days. In fact, Poland recognizes natural immunity and bypasses quarantine if a person has had COVID within six months. In that case, Poland only requires a negative test within 24 hours for entry.

However, if this same American was fleeing Ukraine—a nation on the brink of war—the State Department demands a Vaccine Passport to enter Poland!

This is outrageous! And it exposes that this demand is not coming from the Polish government but straight from Biden’s State Department.

When I first warned about the push for “Vaccine Passports,” who would’ve thought it would quickly lead to Biden intentionally blocking Americans from evacuating out of a potential war zone!

This is unconscionable!

We must help these desperate people. We will not abandon them. Help us serve them with your faxes to the State Department leaders and members of Congress to fight this mandate.

Just one day after mandating a “Vaccine Passport” for evacuation, the State Department announced it would “suspend consular services” at the U.S. embassy in Kyiv. This is just 2½ hours from its northern border where Russia is involved in war games.

Then the State Department removed nearly all of its staff, except for a few in a southwestern location about 40 minutes from the Poland border. Even this second, safer location shut down nearly all services to Americans in the city of Lviv, including passports, visas and other consular services.

In the same announcement, the State Department wrote, “U.S. citizens seeking emergency assistance in Ukraine should complete this online form” and then wait for the State Department to respond … while they hope that the internet is still up for them to receive any message back.

Americans left in Ukraine have almost no one to advocate for them.

I will not sit by and watch Biden’s State Department abandon Americans. We may have a very short window to rescue them.

Here are four ways you can help Americans stuck in Ukraine right now:

1) Send your urgent faxes to the State Department and other key leaders and members of Congress.

2) Sign our petition to be delivered to the State Department and key members of Congress.

3) Donate to help expose this threat and deliver a strong message from our Capitol Hill staff to the State Department. Right now, the impact of your gift will be DOUBLED with our 2022 Challenge Grant.

4) Spread this message by forwarding our email or share this on social media and ask others to sign this petition immediately.

The Biden administration has NO authority to force Vaccine Passports and mandates on American citizens trying to flee the mess on the Ukraine/Russia border. It is unthinkable for Biden’s State Department to completely discard the religious freedom of these people and demand higher standards for those fleeing than what is required of regular travelers.

Help us defend freedom for Americans looking to escape a potential war zone. Give now and DOUBLE the impact of your gift through our Challenge Grant.

Thank you for your help!
