Russian spy Maria Butina, 30, will be released from jail on Friday and escorted by two ICE agents back to Moscow after serving 16 months of her 18-month sentence

Russian spy Maria Butina will be released from prison on Friday and will be escorted back to Moscow, Russia, her lawyer revealed.

Butina worked as a pro-gun activist who infiltrated conservative political circles in the U.S. on behalf of the Kremlin around the 2016 election.

The 30-year-old was convicted of conspiring to act as an unregistered foreign agent and was sentenced to 18 months in prison in April. She had already served nine months in a Virginia detention center following her July 2018 arrest.

On Friday she’ll be released from Federal Correction Institute Tallahasee, a low security prison in Florida and will be escorted back to Moscow by two Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents, her lawyer Robert Driscoll said to the Washington Examiner.

The details of her itinerary have not been disclosed citing security reasons.
