U.S. Naval Professor Fined for Russian Visa Violations

An American professor has been fined 2,000 rubles ($30) for violating the terms of her visa, the TASS news agency reported Friday (June 17).

The professor from the U.S. Naval Academy had entered the country for a “private visit,” but proceeded to collect data for a research project in Russia’s Siberian republic of Tuva, the local branch of the Interior Ministry said.

The US citizen has already left Russia, an Interior Ministry representative told TASS.
