The Kershaw County Sheriff’s Office (KCSO) in Lugoff, South Carolina, is 5,260 miles, or 8,465 kilometers, from Kiev, Ukraine. If the half-dozen men and their two interpreters had taken a direct flight from Kiev, spelled by Ukrainians as Kyiv, the trip would have lasted nine and a half hours. Igor Koziakov and Mykola Yakymchuk are vice-rectors at the National Prosecution Academy of the Ukraine.
