The State Department is advising U.S. citizens in Russia to be alert amid the potential for increased public demonstrations and anti-American actions in Russia in connection with Russian actions in the Crimea.
    
In a travel alert issued Friday, the State Department also advised Americans in Russia to be aware of the heightened military presence and ongoing military exercises of troops along the border region with Ukraine.
    
The State Department says that U.S. citizens considering travel to Russia should evaluate their personal security in light of political tensions and the possibility of violence or anti-U.S. actions directed against Americans or U.S. interests.
    
U.S. officials also advise Americans to avoid all public demonstrations and any large crowds and public gatherings that lack enhanced security measures.
