Security Alert – U.S. Embassy Moscow, Russia

Event: U.S. citizens should not travel to Russia and those in Russia should depart immediately.  The Department of State Travel Advisory for Russia is Level 4: Do Not Travel.

The U.S. government’s ability to provide routine or emergency services to U.S. citizens in Russia is severely limited, due to Russian government limitations on travel, the number of U.S. staff, and the ongoing suspension of operations, including consular services, at U.S. consulates.

Additionally, Social Security recipients in Russia are reminded to contact the Federal Benefits Unit in Warsaw using an online contact form.  More information concerning contacting the Federal Benefits Unit in Warsaw is available here.
