Russian Woman Arrested on Red Square With 14Kg of Caviar

A Russian woman was detained in Moscow's Red Square while recording an Instagram video in which she eats an unusually large caviar sandwich, local media reported Tuesday. 

Gulina Naumann and a friend recorded a video of her sitting in front of the Kremlin's walls, wearing a large fur coat and eating a “huge sandwich” with spoonfuls of red caviar from a 14-kilogram container. 

Nearby police officers thought their behavior was suspicious and they detained Naumann and her camerawoman, after which the pair was interrogated for three hours before being released without charge.

Naumann told the MSK1.RU news outlet that her plan had been to shoot a “retro style” video at a restaurant in Moscow, but when she discovered that the restaurant was closed, she decided to film the scene at Red Square instead.

“It turns out you're not allowed to film so much caviar near the Kremlin,” she wrote on the messaging app Telegram.

“The situation in our country prohibits being chic.”

… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.
