"For many months, The Post has dedicated significant resources to covering the increasing tensions along Ukraine’s Russian border and, ultimately, the ensuing Russian invasion," said Foreign Editor Douglas Jehl. "As the war enters a prolonged phase, this bureau will allow us to maintain our intensive on-the-ground reporting and ensure that we continue to deliver the distinctive and authoritative journalism that readers around the world count on us for."
