Russia tightens travel restrictions for officials and civil servants: “Probably to prevent flights and defections” | War Ukraine and Russia

The closer to the center of power, the stricter the restrictions. Kremlin officials are no longer allowed to go on holiday abroad, according to the British.

LOOK. Former Russian general openly dreams on Russian state television of President Putin deploying nuclear submarine.

“It is an extension of the existing measures, which date back to the Soviet era,” it sounds. “Travel restrictions were also tightened after the Russian annexation of Crimea in 2014.”

What is the purpose of the measures? “They should probably prevent the flight and defection of increasingly disgruntled officials. And there is a real possibility that travel restrictions will be tightened in the future for an increasing number of public sector workers.”
