The US Embassy in Moscow has told all their citizens to flee Russia immediately as the face being conscripted into Vladimir Putin’s army.
Diplomats warned that Russia may not “acknowledge dual citizenship” and the US will only be able, at best to offer little assistance.
They warned flights out of Russia are very limited and some flights to Dubai have hit a whopping $10,000 and more.
The US embassy said in a statement, “Russia may refuse to acknowledge dual nationals’ US citizenship, deny their access to US consular assistance, prevent their departure from Russia, and conscript dual nationals for military service.

“Commercial flight options are extremely limited at present and are often unavailable on short notice.
“Overland routes by car and bus are still open. If you wish to depart Russia, you should make independent arrangements as soon as possible.
“The US Embassy has severe limitations on its ability to assist US citizens, and conditions, including transportation options, may suddenly become even more limited.”
The embassy further warned all US citizens against protesting because “peaceful assembly and freedom of expression are not guaranteed.”
The White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said, “We are seeing protests in the streets of Russia, we are seeing people sign petitions, and I think the message they are sending to us very clearly is that this war that Putin started … is unpopular.
“There are people out there in Russia who do not want to fight Putin’s war or die for it.
“We believe that, regardless of nationality, they may apply for asylum in the United States and have their claim adjudicated on a case-by-case basis,’ said Jean-Pierre. ‘We welcome any folks who are seeking asylum, and they should do that.’
“There is one person who can stop this war, and that is President Putin. He’s the one who started this unprovoked, brutal war, and it is for – it is up to him to stop it.”
