It wasnt long ago she was talking about how much she dislikes America. Im sure Russian prison is way better. Texas still locks people up for a while for THC oil. She would have been able to skirt that since she is famous but Russia isnt going to do her any favors.
Its crazy that people are still blaming the US for not getting her back. All they can do is ask and offer a trade. They did and it was denied. They arent going to send in SEAL team 6 in the middle of the night to extract her. I bet she lost all hope when the sentence was announced. What shitty place to be locked up.
