Guess the U.S. attorney’s office that arrested in Washington, the citizen of Russia Maria Butina has offered to provide sexual services in exchange for the position was wrong. This is stated in the statement, which leads to CNN.
“The authorities have contacts and materials, which cast doubt on the claims of the defendant, that her relationship with Paul Erickson is sturdy enough to be confident in her appearance in court if released”, — noted in Prosecutor’s office.
The lawyer of Butynol hoped that the recognition of mistakes by the US authorities will be as lit as a false accusation. The prosecution, in turn, insists that this is not a reason to change the measure of restraint.
About the detention of Maria Butunoi it became known on July 16. She is accused of “involvement in the conspiracy business in favor of a foreign state on the territory of the United States,” as well as in business activities without being registered with the Ministry of justice as an agent of a foreign state.
The American side believes that Butina was trying to influence the main sponsors of the Republican party to advance Russian interests.
