U.S. Embassy in Russia asks its citizens to leave the country immediately.

The U.S. Embassy in Russia has issued a new security alert for its citizens, asking them to leave the country “immediately” despite the few commercial flights due to the Russian invasion of Ukraine.

In a statement, the diplomatic legation has warned that “commercial flights are extremely limited at present, so that at times there are none available.” However, it has confirmed that land routes remain open.

“If you want to leave Russia you should make the necessary arrangements as soon as possible. The U.S. Embassy is very limited in offering assistance to Americans and conditions could become increasingly limited,” he has insisted.

He also noted that the Russian government could “start denying dual citizenship to Americans and access to consular assistance to prevent their departure from the country” after announcing the partial mobilization.

“U.S. citizens should not travel to Russia and those residing in the country or on Russian territory should leave it immediately,” the Embassy stressed in a statement in which it confirmed that the authorities will provide all relevant information on the possibility of accessing neighboring countries from Russia.

In this regard, they have reminded their citizens that “freedom of expression and the right to peaceful assembly are not guaranteed in Russia” so it has urged to “avoid protests and taking photographs of security forces in the framework of such events.” “Russian authorities have already arrested Russian citizens who have participated in demonstrations,” he has argued.
