This is not the best of times for actress Christina Asmus as she faces a large fine for allegedly discrediting the Russian army.
A case was entered at the Tverskoy Court of Moscow, and the actress stood accused of discrediting the armed forces of the Russian Federation. The case is, however, not criminal, which means she might be off the hook after paying a fine of about 50 thousand rubles.
According to the Tverskoy Court of Moscow, the case against the actress was initiated by a publication on a social media platform. Police reportedly discovered the post during a routine follow-up.
Interestingly, neither the actress nor her assistants knew of the story. They only became aware soon after it popped online. For Christina, it was an unpleasant surprise. But then, as one fan noted, when one is famous, one should as well prepare for anything.
Born in April 1988, Kristina Igorevna Asmus is one of the most adored women in Russian film and was named the sexiest Russian woman of 2010 by Maxim magazine. Not much has changed since that verdict, as many Russians still think she’s the same old charmer.
It remains to be seen how she will resolve the conflict with the state.
