Russian citizens travel to us

Food crisis in russia

Sometimes Russians and Ukrainians who emigrated from Ruthenia in the 19th and early 20th centuries identified themselves as Russians. More recently the emigrants often referred to this group as the “starozhili’, which translates into the as “old settlers”. This group became the mainstay of the Russian Orthodox Church in America. Today, most of this group has become assimilated into local society, with ethnic traditions continuing to survive primarily around the church.

Fort Ross was not a profitable colony, due to high costs and the declining animal population in the area. After it was purchased by the United States in 1867, most of the Russian senders returned to Russia, but some resettled in southern Alaska and California. Prominent among these were the early California gold rush miners and traders. Americans refused Russian settlement in those lands, but the Russians learned to speak and write English so they could trade in the United States.

In the statement, the ministry says the alert has been issued “in connection with the threat of being detained or arrested at the request of U.S. intelligence services and law enforcement agencies in third countries.”

“Despite our calls for improved cooperation between the relevant U.S. and Russian authorities…U.S. special services have effectively continued to ‘hunt’ for Russians around the world,” the statement said.

“Following extradition to the United States, Russian nationals face a prejudiced attitude on the part of U.S. ‘justice,'” the statement said, describing Bout as a “Russian businessman.”

The United States also issued its own travel alert on Russia. On January 10, through a travel alert, the State Department warned Americans to consider traveling to Russia due to threats of “terrorism and harassment.”


Russian passport (in Russian, Заграничный паспорт гражданина Росссийской Федерациии, transl. Foreign passport of a citizen of the Russian Federation) is a document issued by the Ministry of Internal Affairs to Russian citizens for international travel. This external Russian passport is different from the internal Russian passport, which is a mandatory identity document for travel and identification within Russia. Russian citizens must use their Russian passports when leaving or entering Russia, unless traveling to/from a country where the internal Russian ID is recognized as a valid travel document.

In addition to regular passports, there are two types of special passports for travel abroad: diplomatic passports and service passports (issued to government employees abroad on official business).

Foreigners coming to Russia faced various restrictions during the tsarist period; border magistrates could allow foreigners to pass within the state only with the permission of the higher government. During the Instability era, in order to travel within the country, so-called travel cards (in Russian, проезжие грамоты) were introduced, mainly for police control purposes. Peter I, by the decree of October 30, 1719, declared them mandatory for travel, following the imposition the compulsory military service and the capitation tax. In 1724, in order to avoid the possibility of evading the payment of the poll tax, special rules on peasants’ absences were established.
