Russian ambassador to US on Butina’s upcoming release
Maria Butina

Maria Butina was arrested in Washington on July 16, 2018 on charges of acting as an agent of a foreign government. On December 13, she admitted in court that she had entered into a conspiracy to harm the United States.

The imprisonment of Maria Butina, a Russian national, in the United States will be over on October 25, and she will be deported to Russia afterwards, said the Russian ambassador to the United States, Anatoly Antonov. “Practice shows that the expulsion procedure may take days,” he said.

When asked when Butina could be expected to return, the ambassador said: “It’s up to the US authorities, largely to federal marshals, who do not disclose specific information under the pretext of ensuring security.” “We will do everything in our power to ensure that our citizen leaves for her homeland as soon as possible and with no surprises,” Mr. Antonov emphasized.
