The customer also complained to the company “Russian bread” that supplied the bread to the bakery where he purchased it.

A spokesman the company confirmed they were looking into it, and images caused heated debate among online commentators.

‘Maksim Bgat’ asked: “A quality sponge bread?”

And ‘Igor Kutsenko added’: “I don’t think it’s really satisfactory that they just refunded the money. What about compensation for the fact that he had to take it back in order to get the money? They need to be fined.”
