Yoga influencer from Russia facing 6 years jail

Yoga influencer from Russia facing 6 years jail after posing completely naked for a photo shoot under a sacred Balinese tree in Tabanan. Instagram star Alina Yoga shared pictures of her pushing her boobs up against the tree in Indonesia on her popular social media account. But the saucy snaps soon found their way to Balinese entrepreneur Niluh Djelantik who grassed her up and called on the local authorities to intervene. Djelantik said the Russian beauty had posed naked at the 700-year-old weeping paperbark tree, known locally as kayu putih. Now the bendy influencer – who has over 16,000 followers on Instagram – could face up to six years in jail if she’s found guilty under local porn laws. The photos show her perched on the trunk absolutely starkers as she looks cheekily over her shoulder.

The tree is located at Babakan Temple in Tabananm on the Indonesian paradise island of Bali. And because the giant tree is considered sacred to locals, the nude images sparked fury. Fuming Djelantik said immigration officials are now tracking down the naked Russian. Amid a backlash, Alina deleted the nude snaps from her account and posted a U-turn apology video on May 4.

I just prayed under a tree and went straight to the police station to explain this incident and apologize.” Tabanan Police spokesperson Ranefli Dian Candra confirmed that Alina had turned herself over to the authorities and that the case will continue to be processed.

Putin still attends G20 in Bali

Putin still attends the G20 summit in October in Bali with world leaders but his presence at the Indonesia-hosted event will be boycott by other countries. The push to throw Russia out, reported by Reuters, comes as a former Indonesia foreign minister urged traditionally neutral Jakarta to take a tougher stand against Putin following his invasion of Ukraine. While Indonesia supported a United Nations General Assembly resolution condemning the invasion, President Joko Widodo and ministers in his government have refrained from directly criticising Russia for its aggression and have called for dialogue and negotiation rather than sanctions.What the world needs today is the third voice,” Marty Natalegawa, who was foreign minister in the presidency of Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono, told The Sydney Morning Herald and The Age. We must use our independence to say for instance that we cannot accept the use of violence, that the Russian action is unacceptable.

(Indonesian, English, Dutch, French spoken)


We have to start now. The entire year is a test of Indonesia’s leadership. Indonesia is facing pressure from Russia to exclude the war in Ukraine from the agenda of the G20 meeting and facing a possibility of boycotts from the West. It is under a spotlight over whether it will invite the Russian government to the summit and to accompanying ministerial-level forums. Russia’s ambassador to Indonesia, Lyudmila Vorobieva, told a news conference in Jakarta on Wednesday that Putin planned to attend the leaders’ conference in Bali and has argued that “inserting sensitive political issues into the agenda will be counterproductive”.She said the reaction of the West was “absolutely disproportional” and that “many organisations are trying to expel Russia”, not simply members of the G20. Russia has been invited,” she said. “We are very appreciative of the position of the Indonesian government which has adopted the presidency of G20 for this year,” she said. “Of course the G20 is not a forum to discuss or to solve this kind of crisis. Actually, it’s a forum to improve the economic situation and solve economic problems.

The Indonesian Foreign Ministry emphasized last week that the G20 has always been “a forum to discuss global economic issues”, pointing to arenas such as the UN General Assembly as the debate platform for subjects like the war in Europe. The flow-on effects of the Ukraine crisis such as food shortages and rising energy prices would fall into the global economic category but Natalegawa said there could be a “a deafening silence if leaders come to Bali for G20 and discuss everything under the sun except the issue that is right in front of us”. The G20 at the leadership level is one of the few processes where all the main countries sit together,” he said. You have Russia, you have the United States, you have China, you have the European economies and therefore, as a way to find a resolution to the ongoing conflict by multilateral means, it is extremely important for the G20 to address the issue.

Putin still attends G20 in Bali

everal nations had asked Indonesia not to invite Russia to the first G20 gathering since the invasion – a meeting of finance ministers and central bank governors in Washington next month.We hope all will be present. If Russia is present, all are expected to be present too,” said Edi Prio Pambudi, Indonesia’s Deputy Minister for Coordination of International Economic Cooperation. Muhadi Sugiono, an international relations lecturer at the Gadjah Mada University in Yogyakarta, said Indonesia was caught between a rock and a hard place. The US and the West do not want Russia to be there and Indonesia as the G20 chair is in a difficult position,” he said. “I personally think that Indonesia must invite Russia. If we don’t invite Russia it means the G20 spirit is dead. Asked whether US President Joe Biden would move to push Russia out of the G20 when he meets with allies in Brussels this week, national security adviser Jake Sullivan told reporters at the White House: “We believe that it cannot be business as usual for Russia in international institutions and in the international community.It is unlikely, however, that G20 members such as India, Brazil, South Africa and China, as well as Indonesia, would agree to remove Russia from the group.

The Russian embassy in the capital, Jakarta, did not immediately respond to a request for comment. Bali is a popular holiday destination among Russian tourists who flocked to the island in the tens of thousands before the pandemic and were among the first to return when the borders were partially reopened last year. About 1,150 Russians entered Indonesia in January 2022, according to statistics office data. Rifki Saldi Yanto, a local coffee shop manager, said he’s noticed a drop in Russian customers in recent days, with many now paying with cash instead of a credit card.

More than 7,000 Russians are stranded in Thailand, another popular beach destination, due to canceled flights, free-falling ruble and payment problems. The Russian economy is facing its most serious crisis since the fall of the Soviet Union in 1991, after Western countries have moved in recent days to… isolated from the global financial system.
