Marines are not permitted to go to Ukraine, Belarus, or Moldova due to existing hostilities.
Marines are prohibited from traveling to Ukraine, Belarus, and Moldova due to Ukraine’s continuing war. Over 90,000 American soldiers are now stationed in Europe. The month after the wide-scale conflict began, the Ukrainian military has maintained control of a considerable portion of the nation. MARADMIN was deployed to bolster a prior State Department travel advisory, according to a Marine Corps spokeswoman. Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko has invited foreign nationals to join an arm of Ukraine’s Territorial Defense Forces.
Marines are not prohibited from traveling to other European countries, but their travels will be subject to further scrutiny. Thousands of military personnel have been sent to Poland, Lithuania, and Ukraine to demonstrate the United States’ commitment to NATO partners.
