SEATTLE (Sputnik) — Seleznev pled guilty to credit card theft amounting to some $170 million in losses to businesses and individuals.

“Today’s decision made by United States government clearly demonstrates to the entire world that I am a political prisoner,” Seleznev said. “This is not an equal or fair sentence in any way. I was kidnapped by the US and they know it’s the truth.”

“As a citizen of the Russian Federation, I send the following message to my government: please help me, I beg you,” he added.

The case has sparked a furious reaction from Russian officials. The Russian authorities have characterized Seleznev’s detention by the United States as kidnapping and a violation of human rights.
