Russia Is Afraid Its Citizens Will Never Be Allowed To Come Home, Issues Travel Warning
Travel warnings are issued for a variety of reasons, be it social and political unrest, the threat of terrorism or even health. But Russia has now found a new reason to warn people against travel: the fear of their citizens not being allowed to return home.
As reported by the New York Times, the Russian Foreign Ministry bulletin state: "Warning for Russian citizens traveling internationally ... Recently, detentions of Russian citizens in various countries, at the request of American law enforcement, have become more frequent -- with the goal of extradition and legal prosecution in the United States."
The number of Russian tourists traveling around the world is increasing, up almost 25 percent from numbers in 2012. Only time will tell whether such government warnings will have an affect.
