Russian Embassy in US welcomes cancellation of recommendation to avoid traveling to Russia

Washington, Dec 11 (Sputnik) The Russian Embassy in the United States said it was satisfied with the decision of the US State Department to cancel recommendation to US citizens to avoid traveling to Russia.
Earlier, US Department of State has taken Russia off the list of countries where US visitors should "reconsider travel" to and now only recommends Americans to exercise increased caution while visiting the country, according to a newly issued travel advisory. The advisory still recommends US visitors not to travel to the North Caucasus, particularly Chechnya and Mount Elbrus, as well as Crimea.
"We note with satisfaction the State Department's decision to remove baseless recommendations for US citizens to 'reconsider travel' to Russia. Now they are called upon only to 'exercise increased caution' (as, for example, during the visits to the United Kingdom, Denmark, France or Germany). We see this as a recognition of an obvious reality," the embassy said in a statement on Facebook.
