US Soldier Arrested in Russia on Theft Charges, Officials Report

A U.S. soldier, Staff Sgt. Gordon Black, was detained in Russia for criminal misconduct after traveling there on his own to visit a woman he was romantically involved with without permission from his superiors. The soldier had finished his deployment in South Korea and was on his way back to the U.S. when he made a side trip to Vladivostok. The U.S. Army confirmed the soldier’s detention and is providing consular support. The incident reflects the escalating tensions between the U.S. and Russia, with heightened risks for Americans traveling to Russia due to the risk of wrongful detentions.
