MOSCOW, October 26. /TASS/. Russian TV host and blogger Ksenia Sobchak left Russia Tuesday night, entering Lithuania through Belarus, a source in law enforcement told TASS.
"She left Moscow [Tuesday] night. Yesterday, she bought plane tickets to Dubai online, and to Turkey today. She did it to confuse the investigation. In the end, she entered Lithuania through Belarus," the source said.
The police had an arrest warrant, but Sobchak was able to flee, the source said.
Earlier, the media reported on the search of Sobchak’s house as part of the case against her commercial director Kirill Sukhanov. The investigator contacted Moscow’s Tverskoy Court requesting a preventive measure for Sukhanov.
Previously, Sukhanov was brought to the Interior Ministry’s Main Investigative Directorate for investigation. Sobchak confirmed the detention of her commercial director in an extortion case.
"Our commercial director Kirill Sukhanov was detained. They say, for extortion," Sobchak said on her Telegram channel.
