So, she went to Russia, dogs alerted in airport, she had cannabis ...arrested, tried and sentenced to 9 yrs.
Fair /square ?
From my POV, she fucked up, she got caught , she tried to play the "gay" song, the " wait , i forgot that i have drugs in my baggage" , the "political prosecution" , the "wait, i don't know how they got there" , the " wait , my gay wife is missing me '", the " Please US Govt come rescue me even though i fucked up and I DID have drugs " ....etc etc.
Now it's not so cool of Biden to berate russian /any countries laws, trials and more than everything , evidence ( which the russians didn't plant and dogs alerted to it like they would on any other person/country/airport ).
US is also known for prosecutorial misconduct, unfair longer sentences on minorities , highest rate of incarceration and plain and simple the country with THE MOST wrongful convictions on the books.

Opinions ?

If she'd come to NZ, our softcock prime minster would have said "Oh dear, poor darling. Go home and think about what you've done."

Of course, everything Uncle Jacinda is involved in, is a complete dumpster fire but she's not bright enough to work it out. That's why the place is turning to shit, damn fast!

When you go to a country and you break their laws, where you come from or what the laws are there ARE NOT RELEVANT - you are in their country.

She fucked up, tough shit. Local rules apply. If you don't trust the Russians, STAY OUT of their playground!

I agree. The stupid thing was going to Russia in the first place. Its a dictatorship and any reasonable interpretation of the rule of law does not apply
