Не все русские люди могут попасть в закрытые города. Я так же не могу посещать закрытые города когда захочу. Нам нужно иметь серьезную причину. Например: посещение близких родственников и собрать документы, чтобы это подтвердить, в том числе приглашение самих родственников. Дело не в Вас лично. Дело в серкретных объектах.
