Embassy of the United States, Kiev
|Embassy of the United States in Kyiv|
|Address||4 A.I. Sikorsky St, 04112 Kyiv, Ukraine|
The United States recognized the independence of Ukraine on December 26, 1991 and opened an Embassy in its capital, Kiev, on January 22, 1992. The first office of the embassy was located in the former office of the Communist Party of Ukraine for the Shevchenko Raion of Kiev that was confiscated from communists soon after the 1991 August putsch in Moscow. That building was erected sometime in 1950s on territory that previously belonged to the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church that was destroyed by the Soviets in 1935.
The U.S. Embassy in Kiev has moved to its new $247 million location in January 2012 on 4.5 hectares of land at 4 Aircraft Designer Igor Sikorsky Street, 04112 Kiev, Ukraine, close to Kiev’s northern outskirts. The U.S. Embassy requested the Kiev City Council to rename Tankova Street in Shevchensky District, after the Ukrainian-born aircraft design engineer Igor Sikorsky. The embassy is a 15 minute walk from the Beresteiska station of the Kiev Metro.
Today U.S. Embassy in Kiev is staffed by approximately 181 Americans and more than 560 Ukrainians.
Since 2004 the embassy is being picketing annually on April 8 by group "Institute Republic" of human rights activist Volodymyr Chemerys due to the refuse of the US government to pay compensation for the death of Ukrainian journalist Taras Protsyuk who perished in 2003 during the War in Iraq.
