Detained In Russia
California teen describes bizarre ordeal while attending a student conference in Russia.

CHICO, Cali. (KNVN) Sterling Winter left California on a trip of a lifetime a few weeks ago.

The Chico High student was part of a group representing the California Association of Student Councils at a conference in Russia.

“It’s basically about peer to peer dialogue. It’s with the U.S. State Department grant that’s trying to have youth and groups from different nations communicate with one another and built partnerships,” explains Winter.

The trip was cut short when government officials approached them and asked to see their passports.

Winter and the other three students were then questioned and detained for nearly seven hours.
