Sochi activist complains about detention at Sheremetyevo Airport
Anastasia Titova, the leader for the Kuban branch of the "Party of Progress", has claimed she was detained for half an hour by border guards at the Sheremetyevo Airport in Moscow before leaving for Warsaw.
According to Anastasia Titova, today, at 6:00 a.m. Moscow time, at a checkpoint at the Sheremetyevo Airport, the border guards "kept her for about half an hour near the checkpoint for no reason." Meanwhile, according to Anastasia Titova, the border guards took her boarding pass and passport and "carried them out of the checkpoint."
"I was worried that my flight to Warsaw would be disrupted. The airport is large and I could be short of time to reach a landing gate I needed. Then I called a 'Caucasian Knot' correspondent and started talking loudly about the detention. Then a border guard approached me with my passport in his hands. He asked me to whom I was talking on the mobile phone, and I answered I was talking to a journalist. After that, the border guard returned my documents, passport and boarding pass, without any explanations," added Anastasia Titova.
