Well, it kinda looks political, but I'm not gonna talk politics in this thread. I mean, US Embassy visas suspension. Only American embassy in Moscow will issue visas to Russian nonimmigrants, and queues gonna be huge. There are already talks, it will take a few months for businessmen, students, sportsmen etc to get American visas. And they have all to come to Moscow. In the situation like this new players just won't be able to get American visas right in time. At least, it's what I'm afraid of.
