The scandal with models in Dubai. How did it all end?

Models from Ukraine, who disgraced themselves after a nude photo session in one of the hotels in Arab Dubai, will be deported from the country. However, they will not be able to leave the country all at once.

After the scandal with the photoshoot in Dubai, the personalities of 12 Ukrainian models were quickly established on social networks. One of them was identified by a tattoo on her leg. This is 27-year-old Yana Graboschuk. The girl is a lawyer by training, but she did not work by profession, but was engaged in a fashionable job as a hostess — she met guests in one of the trendy Kyiv restaurants.

A year ago, Graboshchuk tried herself as a model and her social media accounts were filled with spicy pictures. The photo showed elite pools, hotels, sports cars, and incendiary parties. Thanks to her photographs in Dubai, almost all the participants in the nude photo session were identified.

Why was the photo session organized?

There is a version that the girls starred in an advertisement for an adult site. Vitaly Grechin allegedly became the organizer. He is a US citizen, served in the US Army, but has lived in Kyiv in recent years. A month and a half ago Grechin celebrated his birthday on a grand scale in Bukovel. In all the photos, Gretchen appears with half-naked girls.

Another person involved in the photoshoot is considered to be the owner of the modeling business, Stefan Clavel, but he denies any involvement.

“I don’t know all the girls. But a few of them are my friends. We traveled together, played sports, celebrated my birthday. They are not from an escort service! Those I know are not usually photographed naked at all! They asked, I don’t want to go to Dubai with them. But I had business in Kyiv, “the businessman said.

What will happen to the participants in the scandalous photo session?

Vitaly Grechin is allegedly in an Arab prison and faces up to one and a half years in prison. Model girls under Sharia law were threatened with up to six months in prison, but the Ukrainian women got off with a slight fright — they would simply be deported. However, not everyone will be able to fly from the UAE in the coming days — one of the girls contracted the coronavirus and will leave the country only after recovering.

I am a hostage: the daughter of the Emir of Dubai secretly recorded a video

Princess Latifa was placed under house arrest in 2018 after a failed escape attempt.

The Emir of Dubai and the Prime Minister of the United Arab Emirates Mohammed Ibn Rashid Al Maktoum are at the center of a new scandal after a video appeared in which his 35-year-old daughter Latifa calls herself a “hostage” of her own father. The video was broadcast by the princess’s friends to the BBC.

Latifa said that in 2018, her father took her into custody after another escape.

The woman said she was being held in a villa guarded by 30 police officers. According to the princess, she has no access to medical care.

“I shoot this video from the bathroom because this is the only room in the house that I can lock. I am a hostage, and this villa was turned into a prison. All the windows are closed with bars, I cannot open any of them,” Latifa says.

It is noted that about a year after the escape, the princess was secretly given a phone, with which she sent messages to friends for several months. When the connection was cut off, they decided to divulge the information received, fearing for her life.

The sheik’s daughter made her first attempt to escape back in 2002, as a teenager. The second happened in February 2018. The girl, with the help of her friend Tina Jauhiainen and former naval officer Herve Jaubert, tried to hide in India. Together they managed to get to Oman by car and transfer to a yacht, but a few kilometers before the target, their vessel was intercepted by the UAE security forces.

In December 2018, Latifa was visited by the UN Commissioner for Human Rights, former President of Ireland, Mary Robinson. She came to the conclusion that the princess was not in danger, but then explained that the girl’s relatives had convinced her that she was suffering from bipolar disorder.

Since then, nothing has been known about Latifa’s fate.

Recall that in 2019, one of the six wives of the ruler of Dubai fled, the 45-year-old Jordanian princess Haya bint Hussein. She also managed to take with her two children from the sheik.

They first took refuge in Germany, and then asked for asylum in the UK.
