The US Embassy in Moscow has urged all Americans residing in Russia to leave the country while options were still available after President Vladimir Putin’s “partial mobilisation” order last week.

The American embassy warned that conditions in Russia are already quite tricky. It’s becoming harder and harder to leave the nation since there aren’t many commercial flights accessible after the conflict, and there are a lot of complete border checks.

“Russian authorities can refuse to recognize the U.S. citizenship of dual nationals, deny them access to consular services, stop them from leaving the country, and enlist dual citizens in the military.

While there are still some commercial travel alternatives available, anyone going to or living in Russia should leave the country right now, “According to the embassy’s statement.

The embassy cautioned that Russia might refuse to recognize the US citizenship of dual nationals, deny them access to consular services, restrict them from leaving the country, and enlist dual nationals in the military.

Thousands of people eligible for conscription have attempted to escape the country after the Russian President ordered the partial mobilization of 300,000 troops in Ukraine.

Images that have surfaced online show thousands of automobiles blocking Russian roadways and hundreds of people crowded into Russian airports.

Thousands of males of military age have left Russia as part of the massive exodus, heading towards the borders with Finland, Georgia, Kazakhstan, and Mongolia.

On Tuesday, the Interior Ministry of Kazakhstan said that 98,000 Russians had entered the nation in the previous week, even though 64,000 had departed.

Russians who entered the country to avoid the conscription, the government said, would not be repatriated.

Russians can remain in Kazakhstan for up to 90 days without a visa.
