Russia Says It Has Deported Four Americans

posted on April 25, 2014 at 5:08pm EDT
Updated 6:38 p.m. with comment from a State Department official.


WASHINGTON — Four Americans have been fined and deported from Russia and accused of “propagandizing American values,” according to a statement from the federal migration service of the Russian Republic of Chuvashia.

The Americans were all teaching English in the city of Cheboksary while on tourist visas, the statement said. Their deportation comes at a time of heightened tensions with Russia, as the U.S. has declared that Moscow broke the terms of an agreement over Ukraine reached in Geneva last week and is said to be preparing new sanctions.

“On April 24 and 25, employees of the Russian Federal Migration Service in the Chuvashia Republic detained 4 citizens of the United States of America, who arrived in the Russian Federation with the goal of tourism,” the statement reads. “During practically their whole time being in the city of Cheboksary they taught English to students of the foreign language faculty at the Chuvashsky government Yakovlev pedagogical university, propagandizing American values.”

Interesting, I know a lot of people work in Russia without the proper VISAS but haven't been deported. I wonder what is was happening here? Maybe living in a smaller city makes them more obvious. Oh well, better to be banned from Russia than from somewhere else. I am sure Ukraine would be glad to have them lol. I didn't know "propagandizing American values" was a crime here? I do it all the time of course, but I do have a legal VISA so...

Being banned from Russia is the same as being banned from life itself! What would be the point of continuing with an empty valueless existence outside the embrace of the Motherland?

Propagandising any values inconsistent with teaching EFL should be banned, if it is not already. Off to the re-education camps! Free forced electives in rules of non-monetary capitalisation on special offer this summer!
