My brother and I, American citizens, are planning an Eastern Europe trip where we fly into Saint Petersburg, journey through western Russia and parts of Ukraine, and fly back to America from either Poland or Hungary.
Does anyone know if this can even be done? Are there legal issues for travelers traveling either to Ukraine from Russia, or visa versa?
My brother would ideally like to go to Crimea, but I keep assuring him that isn't possible these days. Am I wrong?
Edit: Just so everyone knows, I understand we would need visas to travel to Russia.
