KIEV, July 27 (Itar-Tass) —— Kiev region’s Borispol court on Thursday sentenced an activist of a scandalous female movement FEMEN who rushed half-naked at visiting Patriarch of Moscow and All Russia Kirill to fifteen days of administrative arrest, a spokesman for the Kiev region’s police department said.

The incident took place on Thursday morning at Kiev’s Borispol airport. When the Patriarch came out of the airplane, the topless girl, Yana Zhdanova, rushed at him shouting “Off you go.” The girl was detained and taken to a police station, from where she was sent to court.

It is not ruled out that Zhdanova will have to face more charges. Thus, according to a spokeswoman for the Borsipol airport, the girl showed the airport’s security guards a fake journalist card of a nonexistent newspaper Vesti Kharkova (Kharkov News). If it is proved that she made the fake document herself, more charges will be brought against her.

An anonymous source in the state security guards service told journalists that the incident may entail personnel reshuffles in the service, although official spokesman said security guards had acted in a highly professional manner.
