After President Putin released the order for partial mobilization of Russian men to fight in the war, the U.S. Embassy in Russia delivered a safety alert recommending U.S. citizens leave before it’s too late to depart.  “Russia may refuse to acknowledge dual nationals’ U.S. citizenship, deny their access to U.S. consular assistance, prevent their departure from Russia, and conscript dual nationals for military service” the alert claimed.  The alert also said that the embassy “has severe limitations on its ability to assist U.S. citizens, and conditions… may suddenly become even more limited.”
