    A Russian streaming star covered head to toe in tattoos faces either a whopping fine or jail after posing naked in front of a church in Moscow.

    Polina Murugina, then 24, reportedly faces a fine of up to £3,500 or a year in jail if found guilty of “insulting the religious feelings of believers”.

    The tattooed online star posed outside the Church of the Intercession of the Blessed Virgin Mary in Moscow, said multiple media reports.

    The picture was taken summer 2021 but only reported to police early 2022.

    Now, a criminal case has finally been opened against Murugina, known under the pseudonym Polina Face.

    Mediazona reported that the case has been opened, having seen her file on a court listing.

    The streaming actress has not commented on the police action but has closed her Instagram account where the church image was published.

    It is the latest in a series of Russian moves against racy posts beside churches or state buildings including the Kremlin.

    In 2021, a Moscow court jailed two pranksters to ten months for simulating oral sex near onion-domed St Basil’s Cathedral on Red Square.

    Ruslani Murodzhonzoda – a 23-year-old Tajik national also known as Ruslan Bobiyev – and Anastasia Chistova, 19, had both apologised for the “harmless” stunt posted on Instagram, but were shown no mercy by the judge.

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

    In another case, influencer Ira Volkova, 30, was held in St Petersburg for exposing her rear outside floodlit St Isaac's Cathedral.

    Such stunts have largely stopped since Putin's invasion of neighbouring Ukraine in February 2022.
