She did this to herself. Sorry, but no one forced her to bring illegal drugs into another country.

Don't do the crime if you can't do the time. Biden is angry because Russia won't back down and obey Biden's orders to release the drug smuggler.

The whole period of 30 years of the country’s independence Kulibayev family robbed businesses, people. They were part of so called mighty Nazarbayev clan and this has to end. Only developed countries like yours are able to help to balance the justice in regards of this family. This process has already started. Even the latest movie about Nursultan Nazarbayev called Golden man produced by Oliver Stone tells the world the truth. Nazarbayev in his interview said himself that he shot peacefu civilians during events in Zhana Ozen in 2011. He admitted it himself. Crimes like this are against all legal and human rights. The small group of people has stolen all from the people and ruined the economy. Now the country is surviving. All because of bunch of criminals including Timur Kulibayev, Dinara Kulibayeva, Bolat Nazarbayev, Umut
Shayakhmerova, Raushan Sagdiyeva. Howcome all of these crimes are unnoticed by the world leaders like you?!

it is very difficult for the people of Kazakhstan. ordinary people cannot buy food, the average salary is 300 dollars, although Kazakhstan is a rich country in natural resources, the periodic table. Nazarbayev and Kulibayev and daughters and his family by criminal means. took away business from businessmen plundered the state. look at how many planes Kulibayev has a whole fleet of aircraft, moreover, how many castles and we don’t know how many enterprises he has abroad. so one more piece of news, Nazarbayev himself has a fund. the amount of the fund is 8 billion dollars. they robbed the whole of Kazakhstan, we ask you the government and the countries to block the accounts of Nazarbayev and his family and impose sanctions on this family, I personally suffered from them, they took away my business, we ask all the rulers of the world to block the accounts of Kulibayev Timur and Nazarbayev and the family of the Magnitsky list and sanctions

She broke the law in a country hostile to the US, and there’s other Americans who have been jailed for years. She shouldn’t get special treatment.

Jairo Herrera August 6, 2022 - 1:29 AM

No, she can stay her behind in bars. That's why she went over there to live the russian dream.

"Our people should be allowed to break the law anywhere in the world with impunity". Maybe tell the US President to send Anne Sacoolas over to the UK to face trial for killing Harry Dunn. Biden refused to allow her extradition.

Abraham Linkin Park August 6, 2022 - 4:48 AM

Don’t effin dare. She smuggled drugs to a foreign country and she gets a pass??? How is that fair? You put teens in jail over a joint

Emm Yo August 6, 2022 - 5:03 AM

Why? She's not a political prisoner. She knew NOT TO BRING DRUGS INTO A DICTATOR NATION! It's Russia for heaven sake. She knew the laws and chose to break them.
