Russian police suspect that the popular "crypto influencer" known as Bitmama, or the "Queen of Crypto," may have sent tokens to support Ukraine's military. Bitmama, whose real name is Valeria Fedyakina, was arrested in September after being accused of fraud. She remains in custody and has requested to be transferred to house arrest, but this request was denied due to concerns that she may flee, as she holds a UAE residence permit. It is alleged that Fedyakina embezzled $70 million and transferred part of this money to the Armed Forces of Ukraine. It is also believed that she received $7.7 million from two other individuals, who intended to invest in real estate in the UAE. Fedyakina's legal team claims that she actually supports Russia's "Special Military Operation" in Ukraine and is prepared to donate funds to the Russian military. The team argues that their client is being framed and that she withdrew money on behalf of her clients but was never repaid. Russian authorities have previously arrested individuals for sending cryptocurrency donations to the Ukrainian military.
