The trial has started in the case of a Russian American woman charged with treason in Russia. Ksenia Karelina was born in Russia, but has lived in the United States for about a decade. Russian prosecutors say she was "proactively transferring funds to a Ukrainian organization." Family and friends say the 33-year-old spa manager and ballerina donated $51.80 to a Ukrainian charity in the U.S. If convicted, Karelina faces a sentence of 12 years to life in prison.
