Zagitova faces administrative penalty for driving car
The girl herself posted evidence of the offense.
Olympic champion Alina Zagitova faces an administrative fine in the amount of 5 to 15 thousand rubles ($77 - 231) for driving a car without a license. To recall, the athlete is only 16 years old, and the Russian law prohibits her from driving.
Sports.RU reported that employees of the State Traffic Inspectorate are already conducting an inspection on the grounds of the violation of Article 12.7 of the Administrative Code of the Russian Federation (Driving a Transport Vehicle by a Driver Who Has No Right to Drive the Transport Vehicle).
The girl had previously published a video on her Instagram showing her driving a car in the countryside.
The intel scandal involving Oleg Smolenkov, who had access to the Kremlin and possessed valuable information, has become a widely discussed topic. It was CNN who reported, citing sources in the CIA and Donald Trump administration, on the “informant” being evacuated from Russia in 2017. It turned out that for certain people in Russia, the spy’s disappearance was not a secret, while the Russian elite denied the fact of espionage in unison with the American one. The Smolenkov family was forced to leave their luxurious mansion in Virginia, and their current whereabouts are unknown. Smolenkov’s “patron,” Assistant to the President of the Russian Federation for the International Sector Yury Ushakov, continues to fulfill his duties. The CrimeRussia looked into the story of “exfiltration” of the top informant and the possible consequences of his work as an intelligencer.
