Ofsianikova has left Russia, her lawyer revealed earlier this week, refusing to comply with her house arrest.

The court ordered that Ofsianikova be detained for a period of one month and 29 days from the moment of her extradition to the Russian Federation (if it is confirmed that she has left the country) or from the moment of her arrest (if she remains in Russia), according to judicial sources cited by Interfax. It is also noted that the court had rejected a previous request by the investigators to issue an arrest warrant for the journalist.

Marina Ofsianikova had been placed under house arrest on charges of spreading false information about the Russian armed forces following her protest near the Kremlin. Police raided her home last August.

He faces up to 10 years in prison under the law on spreading false information about Russia’s armed forces, which was passed by parliament after Russia’s invasion of Ukraine began on February 24. She was initially fined for her anti-war outburst.
