According to the party, Moscow should detain the actor to stop the US from reviving "dirty Cold War-era methods". The activists offered to use his idea to legalize marijuana as a pretext for a case against him.

As of yet, there has been no reaction to the rather unusual statement from Schwarzenegger.

Yumasheva, who is a member of the State Duma, was detained by the FBI as she was heading to the Fort Ross Dialogue forum. According to the Russian envoy to the United States Anatoly Antonov, the officer asked her "obscure and unacceptable questions" for an hour and then offered to take her to a nearby café for an "informal conversation".

The Russian embassy sent a note of protest to the US State Department but has yet to receive an official explanation of the incident.
