Russia issues travel warning regarding the United States


www.nytimes.com

MOSCOW — Countries often issue travel advisories warning citizens of danger abroad: war, for instance, or a terrorist threat or an outbreak of disease. The Russian Foreign Ministry posted advice of a somewhat different nature on Monday, cautioning people wanted by the United States not to visit nations that have an extradition treaty with it.

Can you people not read?? or perhaps you have a problem comprehending the words...

This statement is a positive towards US relations not a negative.

The statement means that if you are a criminal wanted by the United States and you visit Russia... The Russian authorities will extradite back to the US.

This is a friendly move, Pro US.

So how do you get from this to what the OP appears to be suggesting??

Korg.

Americans can't hardly get a fair trial in America anymore! Putin thinks *OBAMA* boy is a bigger dictator than he is, and I would have to agree. Pres did basically state that although he would wait for congressional approval, it wouldn't really matter what they came back with, he will do what he wants to do, because that is the way he has always done things. A spoiled brat that can't stand to be told NO in my opinion.

I suppose it gives the chance for more Americans who are travelling to pretend that they are Canadian...

I have travelled a great deal over the years and I have seen many American citizens who were wearing the Canadian flag sewn to their clothing so that people didn't think that they are from the US..

I'm not sure about that this time. From what I read, Obama wanted to move forward without Congressional approval, but did state that he was having his administration check into the legalities of it first. I'm guessing the "legality" didn't allow him this opportunity and that's why he's now waiting for Congressional approval. My understanding was that there was talk of impeachment surrounding this issue too, if he went ahead and moved forward without them.

So much for Obama 'resetting relations' with Russia, eh?
Russia is trying to hurt our tourist industry. Hurt our income.
It's childish .. but I can't say that I blame Putin at all.
Obama makes us an easy target for this kind of stuff ...

Tell us again who's not capable of reading? Here's the second paragraph of the article.


“Warning for Russian citizens traveling internationally,” the Foreign Ministry bulletin said. “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.”

You do realize that the quote I posted came from that SAME original article?

You do realize that Russia is accusing the U.S. of "kidnapping" Russian citizens from other countries while they are traveling and having them extradited to the U.S. to face trial?

This statment is about People who think they might be wanted by the US government. Its not like Russia is telling Americans to stay away from them.

Your attempt at understanding the article and CYA is failing. Just go back and read the article. Here, let me help you one small paragraph at a time. This has NOTHING to do with Russia extraditing anyone to the U.S.


Citing examples in Costa Rica, the Dominican Republic, Lithuania and Spain, the Foreign Ministry said, “Experience shows that the judicial proceedings against those who were in fact kidnapped and taken to the U.S. are of a biased character, based on shaky evidence, and clearly tilted toward conviction.”

I think we are going to have to disagree. Your slant on this article is sensationalizing something that is clearly a strengthening of Russia's acknowledgement of the US Extradition treaty.

Clearly your attempts to wind me up by asserting I am unable to understand the article that in itself has been miss understood by yourself is frankly silly.

Listen, I'm not trying to wind you up. You were the first person to accuse everyone else of not understanding what was written in the original article. Just maybe, to keep from looking like a bigger fool, you should be the one to refrain from accusing anyone else of their level of understanding. Especially when it's obvious you never read the entire article before you posted.

How you could miss that this article was talking about Russian citizens traveling abroad and being "kidnapped" by the U.S. from other countries in order to face criminal charges in the U.S. is beyond me, but I'm not going to argue with you about it any more.

Russia doesn't have an extradition treaty with the US, so your conclusion is false.

There is no formal extradition treaty between Russia and the United States. Russian officials cited the lack of such an agreement as a main reason they could not forcibly return Mr. Snowden from the transit zone of Sheremetyevo Airport in Moscow, where he lived for more than a month until his temporary asylum request was approved.
