Arrested in the US, Butina agreed to a deal with the investigation

114
Russian citizen Maria Butina, arrested in the United States for conducting illegal activities in favor of the Russian government, agreed to plead guilty and intends to cooperate with the investigation, the TV channel reports ABC.




According to the channel, Butina’s 8 December signed an agreement prepared by the investigation that she actually operated in the United States under the leadership of a Russian official, "seeking to establish unofficial lines of communication with Americans who have authority and influence on American politics."

The Russian official, according to the publication, is Alexander Torshin, deputy chairman of the Central Bank of the Russian Federation.

Thus, Butina can avoid the maximum punishment in the form of 5 years of imprisonment and get a milder sentence - everything will depend on how useful the authorities will be for her cooperation, the article says.

Then the Russian woman can be deported to their homeland.

According to the information, on Monday, the lawyers for the defendant and the US Attorney’s Office filed a joint request to the court for a hearing in connection with the deal. The judge scheduled the hearing for December 12.

Recall, Butinu was arrested on July 15 - on the eve of the meeting in Helsinki, Vladimir Putin and Donald Trump. The Russian woman is accused of not being an agent of a foreign state registered with the US Department of Justice, she conducted activities in favor of the government of the Russian Federation in the country.

Earlier it was reported that Butina came to the United States to study. In the spring of this year, she received a master’s degree in international relations.

In Moscow, the accusations against Butin were fabricated. At the end of July, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov, in a telephone conversation with US Secretary of State Michael Pompeo, demanded the speedy release of the Russian woman.

        . Russian citizen Maria Butina, arrested in the United States for conducting illegal activities

        Who is Butina, what did she do there? Why should I be interested in a young slut who has been living in the USA for several years with 56-year-old American Paul Erickson?
        Yes, I am for the fact that there all the crowd covered "ours", who is there a donkey and built houses for themselves. Oligarchs, former officials, traitors ... and so that Kirkorov, Pugacheva and Navka are not forgotten!

            Is she our citizen? She’s a pre-Amarican. She was very eager to get tired, for some reason she did not completely, but not because of a change of mind. I must stay in America, since I went there to get an education (under 30 years old - why?). We have got our own educated students there, only shit (Nabiulin, Siluanov and other trash), where I studied, it came in handy.
            But interestingly - Lavrov speaks - a far-fetched accusation, and she acknowledged its validity. And who will now believe Lavrov. It would be better not to fit in for her. Like the Skripals

            Which of OUR people is being kept there? All those who stepped into American "justice" did not just join the Western system of values ​​yesterday and, absorbing the spirit of "freedom and democracy" with every fiber of their souls, shyly kept their Russian passport at the very bottom of their suitcase. But as soon as they tried on an American-style prison uniform, they immediately woke up nostalgia for Russian birches. The problem is not in Butina, but in the fact that Butina is the bearer of some information that can seriously affect relations between the United States and the Russian Federation in terms of finance. A reasonable question arises - What kind of vegetable do our special services release a secret carrier into the lair of a potential enemy, knowingly knowing that he (the secret carrier) can be pinched there so that he can harm the interests of the state? What would then, heroically shipping notes of protest, scratch it out of the American zindan? Now, if it merges information and comes back, what to do with it? Hang the hero on his chest, or send panties with mittens to the Mordovian zone for harm caused?

            In addition, there is such a thing as the authority of the state - for the sake of it, the United States will drag out its citizens from anywhere and will not spare forces and resources. Russia is demonstrating its worthlessness. By the way, is it true that the Russian government is already preparing to deploy Siberian rivers to China? If so, then this is the finish ...

          Well, that's understandable. The question is that in the showdown with the owners of the FRS and even their slaves, the oligarchy of the Russian Federation is so wretched that it is not able to protect even "its own spirit" individuals. But with his citizens, he is "incredibly cool."

          Who is Butina, what did she do there?
          This is a very slippery topic, in any case, you need to know the following. First, Maria Butina is the founder and board member of the Right to Arms NGO. Further.
          Since 2016, Maria Butina lives in the United States on an F-1 student visa. She graduated from the American University in Washington, with a master's degree in international relations. In the 2017 year, Butina, as part of the Russian delegation, attended the annual National Prayer Breakfast in Washington, during which the American President traditionally speaks. She was present as a representative of the public organization “The Right to Arms”.
          In the US, she positioned herself as a champion of the right to bear arms and built close relations with the National Rifle Association (NSA) on behalf of Russia.
          It should be noted that among the members of the Right to Arms organization was Senator Torshin, who provided the movement with financial and information support. In the States, Butina got into politics, not without financial interests, but fell under a "witch hunt" in the light of Trump's accusations of "the Kremlin's hand." In fact, if you look at it, this is Butina "an agent of foreign influence", but in Russia ... Here, either the Americans, according to Zadornov, "well, stupid", do not understand their happiness, or they make Butina a sufferer from the interests of a weapons the US lobby in Russia, from the prospects of promoting arms "democracy" in the Russian open spaces.

            Butina ?? Red sparrow? At least that's what the American side says! So you are with them for one? ... As for the agent, it is very debatable, it will only be a minus to our special services. But the fact that she was confused with just anyone is true.

            There is a type of women who, by all means, need to come up, and at the expense of men. Butina also belonged to them. At first she mutated with Senator Torshin, then she switched to the Americans. Both there and there, everywhere authoritative, status men ... and a huge difference in age! She was good for everyone as a daughter.
            I still agree with the opinion:

            There the shaves hung the Russian citizen Berezovsky, so no one really regretted it! And then all of a sudden something came up for a spinworm, which was confused with the Americans, living in the USA. What for?

              Berezovsky had worked out the material; his murder or arrest could not arouse sympathy. A turtle-tail, a dark horse, on his highly patriotic feelings has a chance to fan the scandal. Although it is clear that our Central Bank is working closely with non-our structures. It’s not even clear how much the Central Bank is a state body! The task, as always, is to shake up the level of turmoil in public consciousness, make the average level of public consciousness unstable, then give a false goal, put a pro-American agent in the presidential election, finally thirst for change to sell the country, in the coming years such provocations will be more and more often.

          Russian citizen Maria Butina, arrested in the United States for conducting illegal activities in favor of the Russian government, agreed to plead guilty, and intends to cooperate with the investigation, reports the ABC channel.

          If business fabricated, that is, there is no corpus delicti, then why and in what Butina pleaded guilty ???


          There would be no criminal case if Butina had registered as an employee of the Russian government from the very beginning. But in this case, many doors would not be her entrance.

          It seems to me that Butina can also sign a witness protection paper.

    "The ex-assistant of the now former deputy chairman of the Central Bank Alexander Torshin, Maria Butina, will confess. Most likely, Maria just delayed the process as much as possible in recent days in order to give her boss Torshin an orientation in the situation. His retirement was a signal for her that she had to go to A deal with the investigation. And now, in relation to the former deputy chairman of the Central Bank and other members of the regulator, information will be leaked. The funny thing is that this story gives the US authorities a very convincing argument for the need to tighten sanctions against state banks and representatives of the regulator. disconnecting the entire banking infrastructure of Russia from the system of international payments is a very close prospect."
