Moscow Police have arrested two women who were attached to a brothel situated near the Sretensky Monastery which had been founded in 1397 – it seems the women were offering their services at 1,750 roubles (£35) per hour.
The abbot of the monastery is said to be a religious counselor to Vladimir Putin, the President of Russia- Putin is a confirmed Russian Orthodox believer.
This has been reported in telegraph.co.uk of dated 29th of October 2012.
The brothel was found in one of a chain of mini-hotels called Podushkin on Rozhdestvensky Boulevard and had, reportedly, been rented out by the monastery – the monastery claims that it is a smear campaign.
A video of the premises reveals leather harnesses, chains and whips hanging in a basement.
Moreover, the website of Podushkin advertises rooms in the hotel which are ‘fitted out for erotic games’ and the police are trying to zero-in on the owners of the brothel.
