Russian Citizens Advised Not to Travel Abroad

From Echo Moskvy:

Foreign Ministry advises Russians not to travel abroad

An official statement says that they could be arrested or detained under the orders of American law enforcement of security services.

“This threat”, diplomats say, “has significantly increased in relation to anti-Russian sanctions implemented in the USA.”

The Russian tour industry union’s press secretary, Irina Tyurina is convinced that the ministry’s warning will not damage the tourist industry. In her opinion, normal citizens are confident that they won’t be affected by persecution abroad.

Tyurina pointed out that the Russian Foreign Ministry periodically comes out with this sort of warning.

Comments from Echo Moskvy:


Speak for yourselves, you lot!


First it’s warnings, then what?


This warning should be distributed in the Kremlin, parliament, and to civil servants. Normal Russians don’t come into it


Forewarned is forearmed!


I would love to be arrested under orders of American law enforcement and security services just so I don’t have to see the faces of the Kremlin.


Couldn’t the Americans just come and arrest us, normal Russians here in Russia, with the consequent deportation to the USA?


I’m for it… take me first!


The Foreign Ministry know them all by name. They should have sent them all an e-mail. Why bother the press? :)))


Cheap disinformation and propaganda.


Announce the whole list.


Now all Russians can only go to the moon… it all ends the same way))
