Kremlin Says Staff of Some Govt Departments Are Subject to Foreign Travel Bans

The Kremlin disclosed on Friday that certain government departments have imposed travel restrictions on their staff as a precautionary security measure. Additionally, some departments have mandated that individuals provide advanced notification of any plans for foreign travel.

According to a Reuters report published on Thursday, Russia is tightening regulations on overseas travel for certain officials amid concerns that foreign entities may attempt to obtain sensitive state information. This move comes during a period marked by the most strained relations between Russia and the West in over six decades.

Kremlin spokesperson Dmitry Peskov addressed these developments during his regular briefing with journalists, highlighting the varied approach across different organizations regarding approval processes for international trips. Peskov emphasized that each department has its own specific regulations governing foreign travel.

"Some departments have completely prohibited travel for their employees, while others have implemented a notification system for approval," Peskov stated, underscoring the diverse measures being taken across government agencies.

The decision to restrict overseas travel for government personnel reflects heightened concerns about potential security threats and espionage activities targeting state secrets. The Kremlin's announcement indicates a proactive stance aimed at safeguarding sensitive information amidst the current geopolitical tensions.

While specific details regarding the scope and duration of these travel restrictions were not provided, the Kremlin's acknowledgment underscores the seriousness of the situation. The measures underscore the Kremlin's efforts to mitigate risks associated with foreign travel and to protect national security interests.

As relations between Russia and Western countries remain strained, such precautionary measures are likely to continue as part of broader efforts to safeguard sensitive information and maintain security within government institutions.
