Foreign Ministry advises Russians to check if U.S. authorities have problems with them before going abroad
The Russian Foreign Ministry recommends that Russians refrain from visiting the countries that have treaties on mutual extradition with the U.S. if they suspect that U.S. law enforcement agencies have questions to them.
"Detentions of Russian citizens in various countries of the world at the request of the U.S. law enforcement agencies for the purpose of their extradition and prosecution in the U.S. have become frequent. Among the latest cases are the arrests of Dmitry Ustinov in Lithuania, Dmitry Belorosov in Spain, Maxim Chukharev in Costa Rica, and Alexander Panin in the Dominican Republic," a report posted on the Russian Foreign Ministry website on Monday says.
"In this situation, the Russian Foreign Ministry recommends that Russian citizens refrain from going abroad, especially to countries that have treaties on mutual extradition with the U.S. if there are good reasons to believe that the U.S. law enforcement agencies have questions for them," the ministry said.
