Comment by the Information and Press Department on the situation in Kenya

The situation in the Republic of Kenya leading up to the general election on August 8 remains tense and is prone to escalation as the election approaches.

The risk of a terrorist attack by Somali al-Shabaab terrorists persists.

The Russian Foreign Ministry recommends that any Russian nationals who are planning to visit Kenya soon for tourist purposes need to consider these circumstances and thoroughly weigh the pros and cons of traveling there during this period.
