KYIV, Ukraine – US Ambassador to Ukraine Bridget Brink in the dock.

In the most important diplomatic assignment of her career, she finds herself in the middle of a war with flak attacking her from all sides.

Fox News caught up with her as she was taking a tour, at Kyiv’s main train station, which is now doubling as a massive charging and heating hub for city residents caught without power amid massive Russian missile barrage in mains power here. Millions have been left out in the cold.

“It’s horrible, it’s inconceivable,” he told Fox News. “What is happening in our view are war crimes.”

“It’s about freedom, about the fight between good and evil,” he said. “We believe that it is absolutely essential that Russia faces a strategic defeat and that Ukraine prevails.”

There has been a flurry of reports in recent weeks that Washington is trying to push Kyiv to at least consider talking to Moscow. Brink is not buying it.

“It will be up to the Ukrainians to decide when and how they want to negotiate,” he told Fox News.

Spurred on by comments from politicians, there have also been thoughts that as Republicans take control of the House, there could be some cutbacks in aid to Ukraine. Brink remains positive.

“I’ve felt full and complete support,” he said, “not just, obviously, from the president, but from the bipartisan members of Congress.” He noted that “accountability” would be a constant feature of disbursements of funds.

As complex as this nine-month war is becoming, Brink still believes its resolution is pretty straightforward.

“I think Russia can stop this war tomorrow,” he summed up. “Russia can stop the war and withdraw troops from it, and the war will end.”

Easier said than done, but the top US diplomat in Kyiv is trying.
