Stars and Stripes reports that U.S. service members and their families are being subjected to heightened 'scrutiny and harassment' while traveling to Russia, prompting U.S. officials to urge the U.S. military community to avoid unofficial visits to the country. In the past couple of months, Department of Defense (DoD) personnel and their families in the Kaiserslautern Military Community have experienced an increase in such treatment by Russian immigration and customs agents. The U.S. State Department has issued a cautionary message for Defense Department members that advises travelers to consider the 'current political-military environment' when planning unofficial travel to the Russian Federation.
