Photo from NEXTA
Those young Ukrainian women who were involved in a naked photo shoot on a high-rise balcony in Dubai have been deported home.
They have arrived in Ukraine after having spent 10 days in a local prison in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), according to the TV news service TSN reported on April 13.
According to journalists, one young woman was unable to leave the UAE over the fact that she had fallen ill with the coronavirus. In addition, the alleged organizer of the notorious photo shoot did not arrive either.
The Ukrainians who arrived from Dubai were hiding from cameras and refused to comment. "The young women who returned to Ukraine immediately began to share joyful posts on social networks, saying they were finally at home," the TSN reported.
