A Russian Orthodox priest has been removed from his post and sent to work in a remote village after his wife took part in a beauty contest. Not only was she in the pageant, Oksana Zotova, performed a Brazilian dance in carnival costume. Photos quickly spread on social media and apparently this was considered outrageous even by Russian standards. The church quickly determined the priest, Sergiy Zotov, would have to go because "the wife of a priest should not behave in this way." Meanwhile, Zotov has said he will file an official complaint to prosecutors over harassment his wife is facing online. He added that he knew his wife was preparing for the pageant and backed her decision to take part.
