Senior Lieutenant Detective Tatyana Alexeevskaya and the Head of the Criminal Investigation Department of the Russian Ministry of Internal Affairs Vyacheslav Gorneev were caught in the scandal after the selfie taken in the Shchukino district of the Russian capital city Moscow.

Local media report a further three unnamed officials who were considered responsible for the incident were also fired.
Senior Lieutenant Alexeevskaya often posts images of herself in striking outfits and luxurious backdrops, writing on one of her poss “feminity is always in fashion”.
Netizens were outraged by the cops’ behaviour, with ‘Artem Rembish’ writing: “Their corpses should be stacked the same way as those in the background of that pic.”
