Maria Motuznaya, who was charged with extremism and offending the feelings of believers after posting an album of memes on the social media site VKontakte, has returned to Russia. She left the country for Ukraine in 2018, but the case against her was closed after the Russian government partially decriminalized its primary anti-extremism law.

Motuznaya said she had no plans to leave the country again and declined to answer journalists’ questions about whether she would get involved in human rights issues following her case.
