Event: U.S. Citizen Virtual Town Hall on March 9, 2022
Ambassador John J. Sullivan is pleased to invite interested U.S. citizens to a virtual Town Hall meeting on Wednesday, March 9 at 3:00 p.m. Moscow time. During the Town Hall, the Ambassador will address questions from U.S. citizens in Russia, in light of the rapidly developing situation resulting from Russia’s unprovoked and unjustified invasion of Ukraine.
On March 5, the U.S. Embassy issued a travel advisory recommending U.S. citizens depart Russia immediately, providing updated information on the currency situation, and noting potential delays in consular notification and access to U.S. citizens detained in Russia. Previous updates included information on the increasingly limited options for commercial air travel into and out of Russia.
Actions to Take: U.S. citizens who are interested in participating should register with the Consular Section by completing the Town Hall Registration form. U.S. citizens may also submit questions for the Town Hall using this form. Ambassador Sullivan will answer as many questions as possible during the live webchat.
