Six women posted a video of themselves twerking near a World War Two memorial. Three of them were already jailed, serving 10 to 15 days for petty hooliganism.
Russian women twerk with WWII memorial at the backdrop
The women were said to have posted the video on YouTube to recruit more members to their dance club. However, officials were able to track them down, leading to their arrests.
Three of them are now serving 15 days in jail. Two of them were exempted from charges due to health conditions while the parents of the 16-year-old member were asked to pay a fine for “failing to instill moral development” to her daughter, The Moscow Times reported.
The court in the city of Novorossiysk ruled that her parents failed to “carry out measures to ensure the proper physical, intellectual, psychological, spiritual and moral development of the child,” RT reported, citing official court documents.
The women were also condemned by local officials.
“We condemn these women. Every inch of this land is covered in blood. It is inappropriate,” Viktoriya Dikaya, the press secretary for the city’s education department, was quoted as saying.
The WWII Memorial
The women were twerking near the Malaya Zemlya memorial, known locally as Novorrissiisk’s Minor Land Monument. The site was historic because it was the outpost the Soviet Union recaptured from the Germans during the Battle of the Caucasus in 1943. Its recapture marked the Soviet Unions’ victory against its rival. The victory is being celebrated in Moscow up until the present time.
