A Belarusian model, who said she had proof that President Trump’s campaign colluded with the Kremlin during the 2016 presidential election, has now backtracked and says she made up the claims.

Anastasia Vashukevich, who spent months in a Thai jail last year for organizing sex training seminars, grabbed headlines after saying she has evidence that Russia worked with Trump’s campaign.

She asked the U.S. government to secure her freedom from the Thai lockup and grant her political asylum in exchange for recordings in which she said Russian oligarch Oleg Deripaska is heard talking about interfering in the U.S. presidential elections. She reportedly worked as an escort, with Deripaska being one of her clients.

Following her deportation from Thailand earlier this month, she was detained in Russia on prostitution charges. She was later released after an investigator decided to free her without an "obligation to appear" for further proceedings.

But the model now claims her story was just an effort to attract media attention and save her life while she was detained in Thailand.

“I think it saved my life, how can I regret it? If journalists had not come at that time and that story had not come to the newspapers, maybe I would die [be dead by] now,” she told CNN.

The woman added that Russian security services told her not to speak about Deripaska anymore.

“They explained to me very clear[ly] what should I do, what should I say and what I shouldn't say,” she said. “They said to me, 'Don't touch Oleg Deripaska anymore.'”

During her short detention in Moscow, she also promised in a Russian court that she won't be releasing any further recordings concerning the oligarch and asked for his forgiveness.

“There won't be any more audio recordings about Oleg Deripaska,” she told reporters, according to the Telegraph. “I won't compromise him anymore, so he can relax, really, I've had enough."

Deripaska is known to be closely associated with Russian President Vladimir Putin. He also worked with former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort who was convicted of bank and tax fraud last year.

Deripaska has been tight-lipped about the woman, only saying he didn’t have an affair with her.


HERE IS CNN sensationalizing her lies last year. They probably paid her for this acting gig.

CNN published on Mar 1, 2018: A self-described Russian "seductress" is asking for US help to escape a Thai detention center in exchange for information on alleged links between US President Donald Trump and Russia, according to her Instagram account.

Anastasia Vashukevich, who also goes by the name Nastya Rybka, says she's being held in Thailand after being arrested on February 26, along with nine other Russians, in the city of Pattaya for running so-called "sex training" sessions. Rybka has said she's from Belarus but entered Thailand on a Russian passport, a Thai immigration official told CNN.


HERE IS HOW CNN is reporting it now. CNN doesn't even let their viewers or readers know outright that SHE LIED about Trump to save her life. You literally have to dissect their reporting to get to THE TRUTH. My gosh CNN is glorying her. (emphasis mine)

CNN published on Jan 29, 2019: A Belarusian model who claimed to have information on Moscow's attempts to interfere in US elections told CNN she had been ordered by Russian security agents to keep silent about her dealings with a Russian billionaire linked to the former chairman of Donald Trump's campaign.

Moscow - A Belarusian model who claimed to have information on Moscow's attempts to interfere in US elections told CNN she had been ordered by Russian security agents to keep silent about her dealings with a Russian billionaire linked to the former chairman of Donald Trump's campaign.

Anastasia Vashukevich, a self-styled "sex coach," made international headlines after she was arrested in Thailand last year and claimed to have obtained secret recordings during an affair with oligarch Olig Deripaska which allegedly shed light on US President Donald Trump's links to Russia.

In an exclusive interview with CNN on Tuesday, Vashukevich said she was instructed by Russian security services not to talk about Deripaska, an ex-business associate of former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort.

"I had some talk when I was in Russian jail," she said. "And they explained to me very clear(ly) what should I do, what should I say and what I shouldn't say."

Asked who explained that to her, Vashukevich said "Russian agents," adding, "They said to me, 'Don't touch Oleg Deripaska anymore.'"

The model, who goes by the name Nastya Rybka on social media, was detained at Moscow's Sheremetyevo Airport earlier this month on prostitution allegations after being deported from Thailand, where she had spent nearly a year behind bars for soliciting. She was freed from police custody last week.

Claims made to 'save my life' [๐Ÿ‘ˆ๐Ÿ‘ˆ Why can't they CLEARLY STATE she made up claims to 'save my life'??? (emphasis mine)]

She told CNN from a Thai detention center last year that she witnessed meetings between Deripaska and at least three unnamed Americans. Now back in Moscow, she says the claims she made to the media were an attempt to get media attention to save her life.

Asked if she regretted making those claims about the evidence she had, Vashukevich said, "I think it saved my life, how can I regret it? If journalists had not come at that time and that story had not come to the newspapers, maybe I would die [be dead by] now."

Deripaska denies any affair with Vashukevich, but he remains a subject of major political interest in US political circles. Trump has denied claims that his campaign colluded with Russians.

Vashukevich apologized to Deripaska for hurting his reputation during a court appearance in Moscow prior to her release.

Deripaska was back in the spotlight this weekend, after the Trump administration's Treasury Department formally lifted sanctions on three Russian firms with links to the billionaire, including Rusal, the world's second-largest aluminum producer.

In her interview with CNN, Vashukevich described her year in a Thai prison as "hell," and said she had contemplated suicide if she was handed a lengthy sentence.

"It's like a blockbuster and I'm inside," she said. "But it's not a movie, it's my life."
