21-year-old Zambian student arrested for twerking at war memorial in Russia (video)


- Advertisment -

A 21-year-old Zambian student, Rebecca Ziba, has been arrested by the police in Russia for twerking at a war memorial.

Ziba had taken to her social media page to share a video of herself twerking on a World War II memorial in Khanty-Mansiysk and captioned it; “Shaking ass for the dead, I’m sure they are sleeping well tonight.”

The Russian Government didn’t take kindly to her actions and described it as “obscene” and “insulting”, the caption was also tagged “offensive”.

She has now been charged to court under Part 4 of Art. 354.1 of the Criminal Code, which accuses a person of “rehabilitating Nazism”. The charge attracts a three-year jail term.

In another video shared online by the Russian Investigative Committee, Ziba is seen in what looks like an interrogation room, apologizing profusely for her actions, while stating that she didn’t mean to offend anyone with the video.

She said,

“I want to apologise to everyone for the video that I posted on the 16th of April. Without knowledge of knowing what it meant and who it was going to hurt or upset, I posted a video of me dancing on a monument,” she said

“The video that I posted, I didn’t intend it to be offensive, neither did I mean it to offend anyone or to be disrespectful to those people that died. And because I did not know what exactly it meant, I never thought it would be this big. I am very very very sorry to everyone, I didn’t know. And if I knew I wasn’t ever going to post it. I hope I am understood and forgiven.”
