The security forces of Vladimir Putin have prevented a transgender former spy from leaving Russia.

Katerina Mayers, formerly Captain Alexander Chumakov, attempted to flee to Mexico but was apprehended for compromising national security.

She was fined £2,500 for attempting to flee while in possession of state secrets.

The 31-year-old stated she has received death threats, “including from former colleagues.” The former Federal Security Service (FSB) employee is not permitted to leave the country until 2026, according to officials.

Following her change, she was fired from the FSB. She previously worked for the North Caucasus security service for 12 years.

Mayers quit her secret service position to work as a make-up artist, and she says she wants to leave Russia because of “bullying on the internet by transphobes.”

When she attempted to go to Mexico, she was arrested at Moscow’s Domodedovo airport. She admitted in court to attempting to travel overseas while in possession of state secrets.

Mayers said: “At the moment, I fully admitted my guilt so that they will give me a quiet life.”

She has indicated she does not associate herself with the person she was as an FSB agent, prior to her gender transition. She said she wanted to “get back on my feet and continue to work on myself in order to prove to everyone that I am a worthy representative of society”.

Mayers, who has even altered her birth certificate to female, argues that discrimination against transgender persons is a Russian official policy.

On one occasion, she claimed she was grilled for eight hours by former FSB colleagues.

Mayers’ lawyer, Konstantin Erokhin, told Caution Media that she will not appeal the court decision.
