Russian Soccer Star's Wife Removed From Aeroflot Flight For 'Obstructive' Behavior

Aeroflot says the wife of Russian soccer star Andrei Arshavin was removed from an international flight due to what the airline said was her "obstructive behavior" and refusal to comply with the crew's requests. In a January 8 statement, Aeroflot said that the captain decided to remove Alisa Arshavina, her children, and their nanny from Moscow-Almaty Flight SU1946 before takeoff on January 6. Crew members said that Arshavina repeatedly described herself as a major in the Russian Federal Security Service "in an attempt to put pressure on the crew," according to the statement.
