Maria Butina paid by Russian billionaireMaria Butina, the Russian citizen accused of attempting to infiltrate U.S. political organizations, received financial support from a Russian billionaire with ties to U.S. energy and technology firms, according to a report Sunday.

Butina, 29, was arrested last weekend and charged with trying to influence groups like the National Rifle Association. Butina was deemed an "extreme flight risk" and is being held without bail while she awaits trial.

In April, Butina told the Senate Intelligence Committee that Konstantin Nikolaev, a Russian billionaire, provided funding for a guns right group she represented, according to The Washington Post.

A spokesman for Nikolaev told the Post that the businessman was in contact with Butina but declined to confirm whether he offered money.
