British Student Ordered to Leave Russia as Media Speculate She Was Spying

A British student has become the latest foreign researcher to be deported from Russia as media speculated that she was spying.
Laura Sumner, a history graduate from the University of Nottingham, has been ordered to leave Russia within 10 days for a visa violation, reported LifeNews, a site known for its close ties to the authorities.
According to Pavel Titov, a migration service official, Sumner had travelled to Russia to research archives in Nizhny Novgorod, but had received a commercial rather than an academic visa.
