American government officials are warning those individuals with dual Russian-American citizenships, if they are in Russia, to flee immediately.

It’s because they could be conscripted into Vladimir Putin’s army, given guns and uniforms, and sent to fight his war in Ukraine.

Fox News reported the warning comes from the U.S. Embassy in Moscow.

There, officials have urged all Americans in Russia to escape now.

“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,” said the warning.

Putin has been waging an uphill war in Ukraine, in order to take over that neighbor, for months now. His military losses have produced dramatically high numbers, and recently his plans for conscripting soldiers into the army and sending them to Ukraine have become evident.

Fox News reported, “The embassy warned that the ability to leave Russia has already become increasingly difficult with limited commercial flights and crowded border check points.”

Its statement included, “Those residing or traveling in Russia should depart Russia immediately while limited commercial travel options remain.”

Putin’s recent order that another 300,000 soldiers must go to Ukraine reportedly “has resulted in hundreds of thousands of conscription age men attempting to flee Russia,” Fox reported. “Russian men have reported flooded into Finland, Georgia, Kazakhstan and Mongolia as other European nations have blocked their borders to Russian citizens.”

The embassy’s warning noted that relations between Moscow and Washington already are bad, and options for transportation for Americans may evaporate without notice.

EDITOR’S NOTE: With what has been called the “Sovietization” of the Biden administration – including the shocking criminalization of dissent and massive weaponization of the FBI against political opponents – America is being increasingly compared to a third-world or communist dictatorship. Yet America still has one sacred institution that dictatorships from Zimbabwe to communist China don’t have: ELECTIONS. And in reality, there is no reason, despite the regime’s all-out efforts at election rigging, that the tens of millions of decent, right-thinking American voters cannot stop the Biden administration’s ever-expanding madness this November. For that reason, the September issue of WND’s critically acclaimed monthly Whistleblower magazine insightfully covers the most electrifying and important races, illuminates the biggest issues, reveals how the latest federal takeover of elections actually violates the law, and much more. Looking forward to 2024, the issue also highlights why, to quote the chairman of a major think tank, Donald Trump “is the most towering political figure in living memory” and the person “most fit to lead” today’s America. It’s all in “STOPPING THE MADNESS: A MIDTERM ELECTION GUIDE FOR VOTERS WHO LOVE AMERICA.”
