Young couple sentenced to ten months for taking obscene photo on Red Square

In Moscow, a court sentenced blogger from Tajikistan Ruslan Talabdzhon (Ruslan Bobiev) and model Anastasia Chistova (Asya Akimova) to ten months in a general regime colony for an infamous photo that they took with Moscow’s iconic St. Basil’s Cathedral in the background.
The court found them guilty of committing public actions, which expressed explicit disrespect for society and were committed to offend religious feelings of believers (Part 1 of Article 148 of the Criminal Code).
The young people were thus convicted for publishing a photo, on which they simulated an act of fully-clothed oral sex. The young woman was pictured wearing the police jacket and kneeling in front of the young man. The building of the St. Basil’s Cathedral was pictured in the background of the photo.
