Russia detains US woman for ‘HIGH TREASON’ after she raised just £41 for Ukraine – leaving her facing 20 years in prison

VLADIMIR Putin’s cronies have detained a US woman on suspicion of high treason and left her facing 20 years behind bars.

She has been suspected by Russia of collecting funds for Ukraine ever since Putin started his bloody war

She was seen with her eyes covered as she was taken into custody by the Federal Security Service.

Karelina is a resident of Los Angeles and is believed to be married to an American man.

She received US citizenship in 2021.

Russian state news agency TASS reported: “The Federal Security Service in Yekaterinburg suppressed the illegal activities of a 33-year-old resident of Los Angeles, who has dual citizenship of Russia and the United States.” 

She was allegedly “involved in providing financial assistance to a foreign state”.

And is accused of participating in public events in the US to help support Ukraine.

She was caught as she made her way to Russia – where she completed university – to see her parents.

Karelina was seen being ushered into a car by an armed FSB special services officer wearing a balaclava.

She has been detained in a pretrial detention jail as she awaits a hearing.

Karelia is suspected of collecting money for a Ukrainian organisation for the past two years since Putin invaded Ukraine and started his bloody war.

Russia viewed the organisation as aiding the Ukrainian military with the cash collected.

Political scientist Fyodor Krasheninnikov claimed: “She probably supported Ukraine a couple of times on social networks, maybe she collected something there.

“If you participated in any anti-war protests, wrote something on social networks, or, especially, donated to Ukrainians or encouraged them to do this, think a hundred times.

“Do you really need to go to Russia urgently? A second passport will not save you from anything.”

Russia has arrested other US nationals on bogus charges.

Wall Street Journal reporter Evan Gershkovich is currently in jail on seemingly made up espionage charges.
