Dire Warning From US Embassy in Russia

As the Russian invasion of Ukraine continues to roll on into its 8th month, there are very real concerns over the potential escalations that are yet to come.

Specifically, the Kremlin has already begun the process of conscription, with at least 300,000 Russian citizens set to be forcefully drafted into the war – despite Moscow’s inability to arm and supply the smaller fighting force already in-country.

This has the US Embassy issuing a wild warning this week.

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.

And that wasn’t all:

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.

Russia’s conscription has been highly criticized over the course of the last week, and a mass exodus of military-aged males has already begun.
