State Department canceled the recommendation to citizens not to go to Russia

The US State Department has excluded Russia from the list of countries not recommended for visiting, reports RIA News.

According to the agency, Russia has moved from the “redefine the trip” category to the “show extreme caution” category.

There are total 4 categories. The most loyal of them recommends the exercise of “ordinary” caution, the toughest of them generally prohibits visits to a number of countries and regions.

At the same time, the State Department still strongly advises not to visit the Crimea and the North Caucasus, where, in his opinion, US citizens are in real danger.

Now, according to the agency, Russia is in the same category with Germany, Britain, France and Denmark.

The Russian embassy said they were pleased to news about the removal of unfounded recommendations to the Americans "to change their mind about visiting Russia."

Apparently, the State Department recognized the “obvious reality”, diplomats noted, recalling that only in Moscow during the World Cup there were about 167 thousand American guests.

In Russia, they saw something completely different from what the local mainstream was cramming with the russophobic circles in power "- the old horror stories stopped working, they added to the embassy.

According to the embassy, ​​one of the reasons for the current decision is the pressure of expert circles and American universities, whose contacts with Russian colleagues often became a victim of artificial barriers.

At the same time, Russian diplomats announced their intention to "advertise" Chechnya, Elbrus and the Crimea to the Americans.

    Apparently, the State Department recognized the "obvious reality",
    ...... yes, they just made sure that ordinary citizens put their recommendations on them for a long time ... However, in fairness, I want to note that I didn’t observe crowds of American tourists in the Caucasus either before the recommendations or after. laughing

        And in Yalta, the Americans may have enough cultural blow: a monument to US President Roosevelt side by side with Uncle Joe

          ))) Cultural blow and the Americans? This is one in a million. )))
          For ordinary Americans, this is the norm to relieve the need for a monument, plunder a museum (Iraq), transport everything supposedly for preservation, and then appropriate it.
          The smocks of the times of the "crusades" remained the same.
          It is surprising that they, on the one hand, impose sanctions and, on the other, they make such decisions in +.
          There is no culture on them.

    You look, they will soon transfer to the most loyal category. But I doubt that anyone in the states knows about these recommendations.

    The Department of State continues to strongly advise against visiting Crimea and the North Caucasus, where, in his opinion, US citizens are in real danger.

    The State Department would be better off advising its citizens not to go to Detroit, for example, or to California, where 56% of the population use Spanish as their home language.

    It’s interesting for the Americans to go to Crimea, to see with their own eyes how former Ukrainian citizens live there! Well, in general, in Crimea there is something to see, especially from historical sights.

      Sorry, but you do not at all understand the mentality of the Americans, alas, but "sharpened" only on "success". What does it mean? Americans are absolutely not interested in any other tourist countries: "sights", "history" and so on. According to their mentality, if you have earned or got the opportunity to go somewhere abroad on vacation, then this vacation should consist only in the "decoupling", that is, you should come and get the maximum of "free" and "loose" nishtyaks - whores , booze like "all inclusive", licking your ass by the hotel administration, "more free chips" in the casino, every day "crazy" "party", and participation in some "flash fashion", etc. And you are talking about "istorii" and other things .... such things drive amerikosov into frank depresnyak. They entertain themselves and emphasize their "status" of the world hegemon, this is what is important for them in rest. Why do you think the American middle class loves to vacation in Hawaii? There they lick their ass in full, starting to lick right from the arrival at the airport, but at the same time, not forgetting to empty their pockets, and even this the Americans let the locals get off their hands, the main thing is that they lick, lick and lick - and everywhere, anywhere and the Americans like it so much.

    Yes, yes ..... that's right: all 167 thousand American guests all "saw" the truth about Russia and "conveyed" it to their compatriots, and all of America unanimously said, "our media and politicians are lying about Russia!" Yeah. wink
