Kristina Asmus, a Russian theatre and film actress, is accused of “discrediting the Russian army’ as per Moscow’s Tverskoy court.
It is unclear what is the reason behind the charges. Asmus is facing a fine at a rate between 30 and 50 thousand rubles (€500-840). Valeriya Uvarova, Kristina’s press agent, has told RTVI she “never heard about any charges” and that Asmus is currently “on a trip.”
