Bridget Brink Confirmed as U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine 

HeadlineMay 19, 2022

For the first time in three years, the United States has an ambassador to Ukraine. On Wednesday, the Senate confirmed Bridget Brink by a unanimous voice vote without a formal roll call. The post has been vacant since then-President Trump forced Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch out of the role in 2019, as Trump sought to pressure Ukraine’s government into providing dirt on Joe Biden’s son, Hunter Biden.
