An Instagram and OnlyFans model has become the latest person in Russia to face punishment for taking racy pictures near sacred buildings.
Natalya Maslennikova, 20, was ordered to report to the FSB security service after baring her rear in view of a church in Kaluga.
This followed her pictures coming to light after police monitored the internet, according to a law enforcement statement.
The model issued an apology, and says she has been told by the FSB she will face a fine of up to £3,000 or community service.

‘It was not my goal to take a photo against the background of a church,’ she said, claiming she did not realise it was a place of worship.
‘It is very old and does not look like a temple from the outside….
‘The photo was taken when I was in a comic mood walking with a friend.’
She claimed she removed her accounts after she was trolled by Male State, a nationalist movement which has attacked Russian women.

Maslennikova has since apologised for the photo, but also felt compelled to remove her accounts from the internet after being hit by backlash
She said she had been to the local FSB office and ‘written a confession’.
Mayor of Kaluga Dmitry Denisov said there was ‘something wrong’ with the ‘mind and soul’ of women like Maslennikova posing in such a way.
‘I want such girls to become caring mothers and beloved wives,’ he said.
‘I am sure they do not have enough in their lives.’
Vice-governor of Kaluga region Dmitry Razumovsky said: ‘Most likely it is the problem with the education of such people.’
He urged ‘public condemnation, rather than forceful methods’ to ‘correct’ them.

The clip was shared to her 6,000 followers in the summer but recently came to the attention of the Russian authorities.
