The U.S. Embassy urged U.S. citizens to refrain from traveling to Russia, and those who are already in the country to immediately leave it, according to a statement from the U.S. Embassy in Moscow, RIA Novosti reported.

The embassy gave the reason for the warning as the mobilization, which began in Russia. The diplomatic mission said in a statement that Russia " on dual U.S.-Russian nationals and may refuse to acknowledge dual nationals’ U.S. citizenship, including denying access to U.S. consular assistance and preventing their departure from Russia."  "U.S. citizens residing or traveling in Russia should depart immediately.  Limited commercial flight options are still available," the message on the embassy's website reads. "Overland routes by car and bus are also still open.  If you wish to depart Russia, you should make arrangements on your own as soon as possible.  If you plan to stay in Russia, understand the U.S. Embassy has severe limitations on its ability to assist U.S. citizens, and conditions, including transportation options, may change suddenly," the U.S. embassy said in a statement.

The U.S. Embassy issued a similar warning back in February, after the start of the war in Ukraine, and has not changed the recommendation since then.
