The US Embassy in Russia has issued an alert for US citizens to leave the country Eurasian immediately.

The American representation claimed that, due to the partial mobilization decreed by President Vladimir Putin last week to escalate the war in Ukraine, “Russia may refuse to recognize the American citizenship of citizens with dual nationality, deny their access to US consular assistance, prevent its departure from Russia, and recruit dual nationals for military service.”

Putin announced last week the mobilization of

one thousand reservists to increase the war effort in Ukraine, which has led to protests and mass flight to neighboring countries.

The American Embassy pointed out that, due to In these attempts to leave Russia, commercial flight options are currently extremely limited and short-term travel is not available for many destinations.

“The land routes by car and bus are still open. If you wish to leave Russia, you must arrange it yourself as soon as possible. The US Embassy has severe limitations on its ability to assist US citizens, and conditions, including transportation options, could suddenly become even more limited,” the Embassy said in a statement.

The American representation further claimed that US citizens have already been arrested in demonstrations in Russia and, as the Eurasian country does not guarantee “the right to peaceful assembly and freedom of expression”, the guideline is to avoid participating in protests and not to photograph security agents at these events. .
