Travel to russia state department

Russians can enter the united states


In a statement, the U.S. State Department reported an update on the status of Russia and Ukraine with respect to travel recommendations for those countries, which from now on includes the warning that any American can be targeted by Russians.

The White House on Tuesday ruled out that President Joe Biden, had spoken to his European allies about his controversial comment in which he said that Russian President Vladimir Putin “cannot remain in power” after the invasion launched against Ukraine.

During a speech last week in Poland, Ukraine’s neighboring country that has received the most refugees from the Russian invasion, Biden stated that Putin “cannot stay in power,” but the White House later qualified that he was not calling for “regime change” in Russia.

Biden explained Monday already in Washington that his comment was a “personal” opinion expressing “moral outrage” over the invasion, but he was “not articulating a change in policy” of the U.S. toward Russia.

Also the High Representative for Foreign Policy of the EU, Josep Borrell, has shown on Monday his reluctance to massively ban the entry of Russians into the EU. The representative has assured that “we must be more selective”, after countries like Estonia and Finland have demanded more measures to the bloc as a whole.

The UK government also advised against all travel to Ukraine, explaining that “trade routes out of Ukraine are likely to be severely disrupted and roads through Ukraine will be closed.”

The European Union’s Aviation Safety Agency said “operators should exercise extreme caution” and avoid using airspace within 100 nautical miles of the Russia-Ukraine border.

“We have customers traveling in late March and into April in Poland, but that’s more than a month. It’s impossible to say now how this will evolve. We are basically in wait-and-see mode,” Kozlowski said via email.

“IATA is helping to facilitate the and timely exchange of information with airlines from government and non-government sources to support airlines as they plan their operations around the airspace closure in Ukraine and parts of Russia.”

In response, on February 25, Russia’s Federal Air Transport Agency, Rosaviatsia, imposed a ban on UK-registered flights, as well as aircraft owned, leased or operated by a person associated with the UK, from transiting Russian airspace.

The Biden administration has been reluctant to declare Russia a state sponsor of terrorism. In the past, a State Department spokesman has said that the existing sanctions regime is sufficient to achieve the administration’s purposes.

As the war in Ukraine nears the end of its fifth month and Russian attacks on civilian sites are reported almost daily, pressure is mounting on the Biden administration to officially designate Russia as a state sponsor of terrorism.

Russia is already under crippling sanctions, imposed by the U.S. and a number of other countries, but official designation as a state sponsor of terrorism would raise the stakes in some significant ways. Where the international components of the current sanctions have been carefully coordinated, state sponsor of terrorism designation could trigger a more stringent sanctions regime that could apply to third countries doing business with Russian individuals and companies.
