The detainees face criminal prosecution in the UAE and a prison sentence of up to 6 months in prison and heavy fines.
Ukrainian Vitaly Grechin was detained for organizing a scandalous shooting of naked girls in Dubai. This is reported by the “Strana.ua” edition with reference to sources.
Grechin is a resident of Kiev with an American passport. At the age of ten, he and his parents moved to the United States, where he received two higher educations and even served in the American army, and later returned to Ukraine, where he served at the US Embassy in Kiev.
Grechin is familiar with former US President Barack Obama and even financed his election campaign. During the years of his presidency, the Kievite presented himself as a financial adviser to the Democratic Party.
Grechin’s Facebook page contains many photographs surrounded by girls, some of which show them half naked.
In addition, according to the publication, Grechin’s name was mentioned in 2019 in connection with the scandalous video featuring poker player Dan Cates. In the footage of that video, Cates sits at a poker table surrounded by half-naked girls in masks, and Grechin is listed as a producer in the credits.
Recall that the outrage of the Dubai authorities was caused by a photo session with the participation of naked girls on the balcony of one of the skyscrapers. The scandalous video appeared on social networks on April 3 – it was filmed by eyewitnesses from another building. As a result, the participants in the shooting were detained. Initially, it was reported that there were eight Russian women among them, but then the Russian Embassy denied this information. The detained girls can face a rather harsh punishment – imprisonment for up to six months and the payment of a fine in the amount of five thousand dirhams (more than 104 thousand rubles).
The Islamic tradition of pardoning in the month of Ramadan can save the participants of the photo session from punishment.
