Russia: Giant Butina poster displayed opposite Moscow's US Embassy

Russian Federation, Moscow
August 21, 2018 at 10:46 GMT +00:00 · Published

A group of activists hung a banner in support alleged Russian foreign agent Maria Butina in front of the US Embassy in Moscow on Tuesday.

The poster shows Butina’s face and a text reading: “Is Butina’s torture respecting human rights?”

Butina was detained on July 15, 2018 on charges of conspiring against the US government in favour of Russia and for failing to register as a foreign agent.

The Russian side considered the US allegations to be ungrounded and stated that it would provide all necessary assistance to Butina.
