U.S. Embassy Moscow stops issuing visas to Russians


The deteriorating relationship between Russia and the United States is gaining momentum. So, since May 12, the American embassy in the Russian capital has been reducing the volume of services provided and practically ceasing to issue visas to Russian citizens, as reported on the resource of the US embassy.


Last Friday, April 23, the Americans received notifications from the Russian side about restricting the hiring of Russian citizens to the diplomatic missions of the United States and other "unfriendly states". Vladimir Putin signed a corresponding decree that day, according to which the Russian government will determine which states are "unfriendly", as well as the possible number of employees hired by diplomatic missions in the Russian Federation.

In response, the Americans stopped issuing visas to Russians, except for diplomatic ones, as well as in emergency cases of threats to life or death and the extension of existing documents. Emergency services for US citizens will also continue to be provided. After the expiration of their visas, Washington recommends that its citizens leave the Russian Federation after June 15.

In addition, the United States has decided to cut the staff of its embassy in Moscow by 75 percent. Thus, despite the possible upcoming meeting between Joseph Biden and Vladimir Putin, both sides continue to "tighten the screws" in bilateral relations.

      Volodya! Pip your tongue! fellow
      Material - rework from TopWar, there was no time limit.
      On the merits of the issue, he commented there like this:

      US citizens with expiring visas to leave Russia

      But this is purely for suckers!
      The UVIR at the request of the host organization deals with the renewal of registrations of foreigners working in Moscow and the issuance of exit-entry visas, including multiple entry visas to them.
      I know firsthand ...

        "Forced to cut staff": the US Embassy announced the termination of the issuance of visas
        "for US citizens with expiring visas to leave Russia."
        But this is purely for suckers!

        Rather for American gastrobeaters belay We are talking about the expulsion of any foreigners with expired documents, remember the Ukrainians were going to be expelled? Why are Americans better? laughing
        Seriously though, foreigners in Russia have been extended their stay with expired documents until July 15 due to the coronavirus. This is just a reminder that the deadline is running out.

    Did he make the decision on his own or was it strongly recommended? laughing The embassy itself is crying that they were forced by the bloody regime. yes
    In general, the embassy collapsed, overseas diplomats in civilian clothes did not bother themselves with rough work like issuing visas, they were doing completely different work here. And now there are no local hired aborigines, visiting clerks who were engaged in their direct duties are being cut off, and those who remain have never been engaged in this, and in fact are not going to.
    Sad news crying for a narrow layer of our fellow citizens lol
    They will howl now wassat
    In general, an epoch-making event, the country was divided into 3 groups.
    The first group is the smallest (victims), those who were deprived of work in the embassy, ​​where they now go to the poor, because people there worked at least loyal to the employer and it is not easy to find work in many organizations with such a summary, but in other places they pay more modestly. But the matter is not limited to the American embassy, ​​there is also Czech and others on the list.
    The second group, more numerous (victims), is accustomed to eating here and spending time there. Those who bought a house somewhere on the shores of the Gulf of Mexico, all sorts of Kirkorovs-Orbakaite-Nikolaevs, and other more modest citizens do not advertise themselves, but have party cards and all kinds of certificates in their breast pocket.
    The third group (the most numerous) sarcastically giggling the bulk of Russians watching the misadventures of the second group, and indifferently watching the creative search of the first group.
    Well, and in connection with this event, a festive fireworks were arranged on the yacht of the commander of the Black Sea Fleet. soldier
