US Embassy in Russia Warns Americans to Flee ‘Immediately’

The U.S. Embassy in Moscow has urged all Americans in Russia to flee the nation following President Vladimir Putin’s “partial mobilization” decree last week.

“Russia may refuse to acknowledge dual nationals’ U.S. citizenship, deny their access to U.S. consular assistance, prevent their departure from Russia, and conscript dual nationals for military service,” the embassy warned Tuesday.

The embassy warned that the ability to leave Russia has already become increasingly difficult with limited commercial flights and crowded border check points.

“Those residing or traveling in Russia should depart Russia immediately while limited commercial travel options remain,” the statement released by the embassy added.

Putin’s decree to mobilize 300,000 soldiers to go fight in his war in Ukraine has reportedly resulted in hundreds of thousands of conscription age men attempting to flee Russia.

Images have surfaced on social media showing packed airports and Finnish border check point officials have said thousands of cars have jammed up highways as Russians, mostly fighting age men, look to flee from Putin’s order.

Russian men have reported flooded into Finland, Georgia, Kazakhstan and Mongolia as other European nations have blocked their borders to Russian citizens.

The White House said Tuesday it will accept Russian refugees attempting to forgo joining the war in Ukraine.

Over a five-day period after Putin announced the mobilization on Sept. 21 some 261,000 men had already fled Russia according to Novaya Gazeta Europe Monday.

The embassy warned all Americans in Russia that the State Department has a limited ability to assist, particularly as tensions between Moscow and Washington continue to escalate to levels not seen since the Cold War, and said, “conditions, including transportation options, may suddenly become even more limited.”

The State Department has also advised Americans not travel to or through Russia at this time.

    If democrats didn’t fix the 2020 election we’d never be in this mess. I’d bet Putin would not have invaded. We’d have pipelines, cheap energy, plenty of jobs and no inflation. Democrats are evil.
