Newsline: US Embassy in Russia Says Visits to Crimea Not to Affect Visa Applications

During a web chat organized by the embassy on its official Facebook page, one of the participants asked “is it true that after visiting Crimea there could be problems with [obtaining] a US visa?” The embassy replied that visiting Crimea “will not affect the chances of getting a US visa.” Crimea became part of Russia after almost 97 percent of those who voted in a local referendum on the issue in 2014 supported the move. Ukraine did not recognize the outcomes of the referendum in Crimea and accused Russia of annexation.
