Travel in Russia in summer of 2014

My husband and I, as well as 4 friends, are slated to take a River Cruise with a US travel Co this July.

We do not yet have Visas. Do you think there will be any difficulty in obtaining a Visa given the current
political situation between Russia, the Ukraine and the Crimea?

I hope not! We are taking the Rick Steves's tour that ends in St. Petersburg and then taking the river cruise to Moscow.

I hope there are no problems for you. I took the river cruise in the opposite direction a few years ago and it is WONDERFUL !!! You will really see a lot of Russia.
(I'm booked on a tour of Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania in mid May and wondering about the
conditions there too.)
Here's to successful trips for both of us.
