What we know about Ksenia Karelina arrest

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.

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

Reports suggested she only raised £41 for the cause.

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

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

She was later seen in the footage behind bars in a pretrial detention jail as she awaits a hearing.

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.”

The FSB has recently detained a record number of people for alleged espionage and high treason.

This includes a string of scientists – some in their 70s – accused of supplying hypersonic missile secrets to the West or China.
