The prostitute who accused ex-Gov. Eliot Spitzer of choking her during a fight at the Plaza Hotel hopped on a Russia-bound airplane after refusing to press charges.
Svetlana Travis, 25, took a 7:30 p.m. Sunday flight from JFK Airport to Moscow, using a ticket she had purchased in advance, the sources said.
“She said she just wanted to go back to Russia,” one source said.
“She was lucid. She insisted on going…and there were no grounds for us to keep her here.”
Travis first dropped her bombshell allegation against Spitzer at Roosevelt Hospital, where she was treated Saturday night for a superficial cut to her forearm that she said she inflicted on herself with a broken wine glass, sources said.
After she told doctors that Spitzer had pushed her and grabbed her by the neck, the hospital contacted the NYPD and she repeated the claim to cops.
Travis said the hooker-loving former pol went ballistic inside his $1,000-a-night room when she told him she planned to return to her native country around 8 p.m. Saturday.
Travis claimed that the disgraced ex-Love Gov “got upset and started throwing her around, choked her, threw her to the ground and threatened her,” leading her to break the glass and cut herself, sources have said.
She later changed her account of the incident, became “totally uncooperative” and refused to speak with detectives.
Spitzer hasn’t been charged, and his spokeswoman has said there’s “no truth to the allegation” he choked Travis.
