On February 25, Vashukevich and her guru and friend Kirylau were detained for illegal work, i.e. organising ‘sex training’ for Russian tourists, on the Thai island of Ko Lan, and put in prison in Pattaya. Later, Rybka promised to tell American journalists about Trump-Russia relations, if she was ‘sill alive’, and asked for the U.S. protection.

FBI agents wanted to talk with her in prison, but the Thai authorities failed to give their consent.

She even wrote the book A Story Of Seducing A Billionaire, Or A Clone For An Oligarch.
