If true, that _doesn't_ change the substance of what I was saying at
all:  In fact, it would make it even _more_ appealing for an embezzler to
just cash out quickly and depart without complicated scheming, not less.

I think you're completely missing my underlying point:  If she were
worried about being tried for grand theft / embezzlement, just calmly
and quickly going to Russia and eschewing elaborate revenge/frameup
schemes would be her best and most obvious move, because she would then
be outside the jurisdiction of any court that would care.  

Defence's contention that Nina was carrying out an elaborate revenge /
frameup plot thus had the problems that (1) it was out of character for
such an obviously pragmatic person, not to mention (2) an utter lack of

Borrow William of Occam's famous razor for just the merest moment, and
see if you don't concur.
