Matthew 24:6 “And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not alarmed, for this must take place, but the end is not yet.”

Important Takeaways:

  • U.S. State Department warns Americans to leave Russia ‘immediately’
  • “U.S. citizens should depart Russia immediately,” the department warned in a Level 4 Do Not Travel Advisory, which is the highest level advisory on a 1-4 level ranking.
  • The advisory said that “due to the unprovoked and unjustified attack by Russian military forces in Ukraine,” there is potential for Russian officials to harass U.S. citizens, and they may also have problems accessing money.
  • “Russian security services have arrested U.S. citizens on spurious charges, denied them fair and transparent treatment, and have convicted them in secret trials and/or without presenting credible evidence,” the advisory said.
  • The U.S. government said its ability to respond was especially limited in areas of Russia far away from the U.S. Embassy in Moscow due to Russian government limitations on travel, the number of U.S. staff, and ongoing suspension of operations, including U.S. consulates.
