The US Department of State recently issued a top-level travel advisory for American citizens currently in Russia, warning them to leave the country immediately. This is supposedly due to potential harassment and detention by Russian government security officials that could arise. This warning comes on the heels of the Biden regime's decision to supply Ukraine with Abrams tanks, a move that was met with strong condemnation from Vladimir Putin who warned that the response from Russia could extend beyond armored vehicles.
In September, Putin also made it clear that Russia has various means of destruction and will use them if their territorial integrity is threatened. Following this development, an alarming announcement was made by The Doomsday Clock which moved closer than ever before to midnight - representing humanity’s proximity to global catastrophe, prompting the World Health Organization to urge countries to start stockpiling meds for nuclear emergencies.
This news has caused widespread alarm as tensions between the US and Russia continue to mount and Europe is forced into a situation they may not have been ready for. To make matters worse, Germany soon after announced they would be sending Leopard 2 tanks to Ukraine as well in what some consider a blatant provocation towards Moscow. This only serves to further complicate an already precarious situation as both sides are now forced into a corner with no other option but conflict should someone make a wrong move or say something out of line. As Putin stated himself: “everyone should understand this” when it comes to modern-day warfare with Russia. “Unbelievable, but true – we are once again threatened with German Leopard tanks, with crosses on their hull. And once again seeking to battle Russia in Ukraine with the help of Hitler’s followers, the Banderites,” Putin said.
The U.S. Embassy released a statement:
“Do not travel to Russia due to the unpredictable consequences of the unprovoked full-scale invasion of Ukraine by Russian military forces, the potential for harassment and the singling out of U.S. citizens for detention by Russian government security officials, the arbitrary enforcement of local law, limited flights into and out of Russia, the Embassy’s limited ability to assist U.S. citizens in Russia, and the possibility of terrorism. U.S. citizens residing or traveling in Russia should depart immediately. Exercise increased caution due to the risk of wrongful detentions.”
“The U.S. government’s ability to provide routine or emergency services to U.S. citizens in Russia is severely limited, particularly in areas far from the U.S. Embassy in Moscow, due to Russian government limitations on travel for embassy personnel and staffing, and the ongoing suspension of operations, including consular services, at U.S. consulates.”
“In September, the Russian government mobilized citizens to the armed forces in support of its invasion of Ukraine. Russia may refuse to acknowledge dual nationals' U.S. citizenship, deny their access to U.S. consular assistance, subject them to mobilization, prevent their departure from Russia, and/or conscript them.”
This warning seems somewhat late if that's what it was really about. But I don't think that's the full story. I think that now that the U.S. has decided to arm Ukraine in their fight against Russia, they sense that they're on the brink of starting World War III.
