A 24-year-old online star is under fire for posting indecent images showing her posing nude in front of a church in Russia.

Polina Murugina is now undergoing a law enforcement check for her revealing pictures taken outside the Church of the Intercession of the Blessed Virgin Mary in Moscow. The tattooed personality faces up to £3,000 in fines or at least a year in jail if found guilty of insulting the religious feelings of believers.

The photo showing Murugina nude in front of the church was taken last summer and was only reported to authorities recently, The Sun reported.

The 24-year-old has yet to issue comments on her arrest. However, the Instagram account where the said photo was published has since been closed.

This is the latest in a series of indecent posts with Russian authorities clamping down on people who put up indecent images beside churches or state buildings. That list includes the Kremlin.

Just last year, two individuals got a jail sentence of ten months after they simulated beside churches or state buildings including the Kremlin.

They were identified as Ruslani Murodzhonzoda and Anastasia Chistova. Both ended up apologizing for their tirade that was put up on Instagram. Despite their remorse, the presiding judge showed no mercy and handed out the punishment.

“Anastasia Chistova and Ruslani Murodzhonzoda committed public actions expressing clear disrespect for society,” Moscow’s Tverskoi district court stated back in October.

Both were imprisoned under a new Russian law which found them guilty of offending the feelings of religious people.

There was also the case of 30-year-old influencer Ira Volkova. She ended up being arrested after exposing her behind outside the St. Isaac’s Cathedral.

The moves of the said personalities are believed to be a part of their intent to draw attention and create sensationalism. This is done through revealing photos, something that authorities are cracking down on with the intent of discouraging others from doing the same.
