With a disguise, in a green outfit, she was able to deceive the police who were monitoring the apartment. She left her mobile phone behind so the authorities could not track her.

According to the report, Alyokhina is now in Vilnius. A friend of hers took her to the Belarusian border and she arrived in Lithuania about a week later. A valid travel document that was smuggled into the country for it.

According to Alukina, the result of their escape plan was “unexpected” and is a “big” signal to the Russian authorities. “I’m glad I did,” she was quoted as saying in the New York Times. “I still don’t quite understand what I did,” Elkhina said.
