Newsline: State Department says Americans should leave Russia ‘immediately’

The State Department urged Americans on Saturday to leave Russia immediately, citing the “unprovoked and unjustified attack” by Russia against Ukraine and the potential for harassment of U.S. citizens by Russian government security forces. (https://news.yahoo.com/cease-fire-two-ukraine-areas-083949586.html) The new travel advisory updated a notice issued Monday that said Americans should “consider” leaving Russia immediately. The new advisory also said Americans should not travel to Russia. For those wishing to leave Russia, limited commercial flights are still available, and routes by car and bus are also still open, the advisory said. Americans who wish to stay in Russia should understand the U.S. Embassy is limited in its ability to assist U.S. citizens and that transportation options and other conditions may change suddenly, the advisory said.
