US warns American citizens in Russia to leave ‘immediately’ [Video]




  • Americans in Russia have been warned to “depart immediately” amid a “do not travel” advisory against Russia.
  • The U.S. Embassy in Russia warned Americans there that they could be mobilized or conscripted to Russian forces.
  • The embassy noted that Americans in Russia have already been facing harassment and unlawful detention since Russia invaded Ukraine.

The U.S. Embassy in Russia issued a “do not travel” advisory for Russia and warned Americans there to “depart immediately.” The advisory cited “unpredictable consequences of the unprovoked full-scale invasion of Ukraine by Russian military forces.”

The advisory was issued ahead of the upcoming one-year anniversary of Russia’s war on Ukraine. The embassy noted that Americans in Russia have been facing harassment and unlawful detention.

Back in September, the Russian government ordered a partial mobilization of Russian citizens to the armed forces to help fight its invasion, marking the nation’s first military mobilization since World War II.

Russian President Vladimir Putin also made veiled threats of turning to nuclear weapons at the time. He declared, “When the territorial integrity of our country is threatened, we will certainly use all the means at our disposal to protect Russia and our people. It’s not a bluff.”

The U.S. Embassy in Russia warned that “Russia may refuse to acknowledge dual nationals’ U.S. citizenship, deny their access to U.S. consular assistance, subject them to mobilization, prevent their departure from Russia, and/or conscript them.”

According to several reports, Russian troops have been struggling with a lack of resources, exhaustion, and demotivation. However, U.S. officials do not believe that Putin would withdraw anytime soon.

National Security Council spokesperson John Kirby said on Friday that Putin might just order “more vicious” attacks on Ukraine as the weather transitions from winter.

Kirby noted that recent attacks on Ukraine only show that Putin is “willing to continue to barrage the country with cruise missiles, knocking out civilian infrastructure, and trying to make life more difficult for the Ukrainian people.” He said that authorities believe that Putin will conduct “renewed offensive operations come spring.”

Russia and its leaders, including Putin himself, has faced increasingly severe economic sanctions since it launches its large-scale invasion of Ukraine on Feb. 24, 2022.

The actual number of deaths is difficult to determine, but both sides have faced scores of deaths and injuries. Several civilians in Ukraine, including children, have been impacted.

The United Nations reported over 7 million refugees from the country, half of whom are children. Millions more in Ukraine have lost their homes.

    Putrid never “threatened to use nuclear weapons”. He hasn’t said anything that isn’t already codified by law in Russia’s security framework and that is 1. A deterrent to attack. 2. An existential response to an attack. The same cannot be said for idiots in the Pentagon, and various warmongering Washington thinktanks, including the Council on Foreign Relations which have proposed using “strategic tactical nukes” against both Russia and China. In case people have forgotten, there is only one country on the planet that has already used nuclear weapons against civilians in a serial mass murder campaign: the US.

    All this comes as more warmongering propaganda and a distraction from the Briben Bureaucracy’s ongoing WWIII Project. We now know with certainty that Briben, Sullivan, Burns, Blinken and Nuland conspired and authorized an act of eco-terrorism in the Baltic Sea that was also an unprovoked act of war against a fellow NATO member Germany and a nuclear power, Russia, without informing Congress as required by law and without a Congressional Declaration of War as REQUIRED by the Constitution. This is an impeachable offense. The msm and the poltroons in Congress have been non-responsive, or more accurately, accessories to unprovoked aggression. They have used the fake “China spy balloon” story for a few propaganda cycles to draw brainwashed dunderheads’ attention from this war crime. The Briben Bureaucracy has thus expedited the demise of NATO – and the EU – by imperiling Germany, formerly Europe’s strongest economy, while raising its energy costs five-fold. As the war criminal Kissinger put it so succinctly, “It may be dangerous to be America’s enemy, but to be America’s friend is fatal.” Germany and Ukraine have learned this the hard way.

    If Lorena is your real name, you just published the biggest lines of BS ever. This article is filled with faultshoods and lies. I am an American living in Russia, I know first hand how Russia treats all people. Never have I or any other American been harassed or ever feared of being conscripted. At first I laughed at your article, then I got angry. This is total fear mongering…now stop it…

    This democratic leadership is stepping all over our middle-class people while sending billions to Ukraine. This really needs to stop now. We have all kinds of corruption going on, as well as the destruction of our morals and securities right here at home. While biden and his totally corrupt group of communists are destroying our country. There seems to be enough to impeach joey. Why are we waiting? “JOE MUST GO”
