A RUSSIAN mandarin was left red-faced last night after accidentally posting a nude selfie on the official Ministry of Defence Instagram account.
The quickly-deleted post sparked fevered speculation about the woman’s identity – with eagle-eyed Twitter users claiming military spokeswoman Rossiyana Markovskaya was behind the racy post.
Instagram The picture briefly appeared on the verified Mil_Ru account – which usually shows off Vladimir Putin’s fearsome military arsenal.
