Nastya Rybka, an escort from Russia, has urged the Trump administration to free her from the arrest. Rybka was arrested by Thai police on Sunday for offering sex lessons without a permit. Rybka has offered to reveal sensitive information linking Russia and Donald Trump's presidential campaign.
Rybka, also known by the name Anastasia Vashukevich, came into prominence after a Russian business Oleg Deripaska demanded Rybka to remove their pictures and videos from her social accounts. He also obtained a court order for the same and threatened that Russia will block Instagram access in the country if his demands are not met by Rybka.
Deripaska is believed to have close ties with Paul Manafort who briefly headed Trump's presidential campaign.
Rybka, in a social media post, claimed that she has evidence linking Manafort to Russia and US presidential elections. She also noted that she will not disclose anything until she is freed and in a "safe" place where she is not "worried" about her life.
Rybka describes herself as Deripaska's mistress on her Instagram account.
