The U.S. embassy in Moscow has warned Americans in Russia to leave immediately, as more countries impose airspace restrictions on Russia.
“An increasing number of airlines are canceling flights into and out of Russia, and numerous countries have closed their airspace to Russian airlines,” the embassy said in a statement. “U.S. citizens should consider departing Russia immediately via commercial options still available.”
The embassy added that American citizens should have a contingency plan “that does not rely on U.S. government assistance.” Americans also should monitor local and international media, keep in contact with family and friends, stay alert of their surroundings when in public, review security plans, and always carry their passport with a current Russian visa, the embassy said.
