It's definitely a possibility that the oil was planted although the video of the event doesn't give off that vibe as she doesn't appear to protest the presence of the oil in her suitcase. But if it wasn't, I'm not surprised at the turn of events.I want to know what we can do about this. It's just wrong what they are doing to her. You know they are trying to make an example of her for something they have probably let slide in the past (or alternatively that they planted on her).
Attempting to take cannabis into Russia, regardless of its form, is no small deal.
Here's a similar case with someone anonymous back in 2019. The student only spent 2 months in jail but risked more.
She was allegedly found in possession of 19.05 grams of cannabis during an airport search.
