Tour operators in Maldives said a former Russian ballerina could face penalties for posing for nude photos on a beach in the country.
Anastasia Volochkova, a former ballet star with Russia's famed Bolshoi Theater, posted the nude photos to her blog Tuesday, RIA Novosti reported Friday.
"Dear paparazzi, just for you! You're hunting for us, stars, trying to take pictures of our pants, and even better to catch us without them. As if we have something others do not," Volochkova wrote in a note accompanying the pictures.
Maldiviana tour operator Lyudmila Mostovaya said Volochkova, who is still in the country on vacation, could face penalties ranging from a warning to a fine.
