The artist commented: "When I learned the real reason behind my arrest, I laughed. They arrested me for suspicion that I was younger than the age of the identity papers. I used to hear courtesies about my outward appearance, but I never expected Jamali to be my reason for arresting me."
The artist Natalia Dzinkev was released after the fans who wanted to sign the autographs flocked to her. Dzinkev later published pictures of her from Turkey on her front page at Instagram.
