The video published on the social network shows that the host crossed the Belarusian-Lithuanian border at the point Vidzy Passes
A video appeared on the Web showing how the famous Russian TV presenter and blogger Ksenia Sobchak crossed the border in Belarus. When asked by the border guard where she was going, Sobchak said: “To Lithuania.” The video appeared on the Three Sisters Telegram channel, where they clarified that the exclusive had been “sent” to them and that it was Ksenia Sobchak that was captured on the video.
Remarkably, the aforementioned Telegram channel had no more than 800 subscribers before publication , but it was noticed by many Kremlin propagandists, including Vladimir Solovyov, who immediately began to distribute the video.
The video shows that a woman who looks like Ksenia Sobchak, dressed very simply: in a tracksuit and a cap, walks to the Belarusian-Lithuanian border at the Vidzy checkpoint.
Accompanying her is one man with a sports bag, her son Plato is not with her. It also became known earlier that her husband, director Konstantin Bogomolov, remained in Moscow.
Next, Sobchak gives the border guard his passport, clarifies that he is going to Lithuania and crosses the border. It is not known if the mysterious man crossed the border with her, she carried her bag herself.
The fact that she left Russia on the night of October 26 became known today. As well as the fact that she, literally, covering her tracks, bought several tickets at once for different flights: to Dubai and Turkey. Which turned out to be useful, because law enforcement officers were waiting for her at the airports.
Sobchak's hasty flight is connected with today's arrests. Kirill Sukhanov, commercial director of Ksenia Sobchak, and Arian Romanovsky, former editor-in-chief of Tatler magazine, were arrested on charges of extortion. They face 15 years behind bars. Russian media claim that they extorted money from a certain top manager of the Rostec company for not publishing posts about him.
Searchs were also carried out in the house of Ksenia Sobchak near Moscow. At first, Sobchak herself did not have any procedural status. But by the end of the day, TASS reported that Sobchak had become a suspect in a case of extortion from the state corporation Rostec. Literally, she is suspected of “extortion in order to obtain property on an especially large scale. The sanctions of the article imply up to 15 years in prison.
It is noteworthy that on the Telegram channels of Ksenia Sobchak there is still no word that she left Russia.
There was only a mention of the arrest of Kirill Sukhanov, her commercial director.
“I do not believe in this at all, and I hope that now they will quickly sort everything out and make sure that all this is some kind of nonsense. If not, then it is obvious that this is a raid on my editorial office – the last free editorial office in Russia, which had to be clamped down. I hope this is not so, and that's all a glaring misunderstanding,” the post says.
