A former top Russian ballerina has given away a huge military secret on Instagram – entirely by accident.
Anastasia Volochkova first hit the headlines in 2003 after she was sacked by the Bolshoi Ballet for being “too fat” and then won a court battle forcing them to reinstate her.
However, since then, she has become a huge social media influencer in Russia, as well as launching a successful modelling career.

But the 47-year-old Russia native has landed herself in hot water by giving away a location where a Ukrainian drone flew by… near a military base close to her home.
But she drew criticism for apparently helping Ukraine after complaining about a loud bang caused by an explosion from an apparent attack on a military base nearby on May 30.
Posting a video about the incident on her Instagram stories, she said: “Oh, good people, two hours ago I woke up from such terrible explosions.

“We have this military unit right next to us, right in Nikolo-Uryupino.”
The area is small town in the Moscow Oblast and a search on Google Maps does show a military base a short distance from it.
She later deleted the video, but by then, it had already been widely shared.

On one Telegram channel, she was thanked by a group that said they were able to work out exactly where the military base was.
They wrote: "Thanks to her data, we have established that Volochkova's house is located at a distance of 1.5 km [0.9 miles] from the Russian military unit 11105-2 (engineering battalion, archive), stationed at the address: Moscow region, Inzhenerny-1."
In the past, Anastasia has been outspoken against the annexation of Crimea to Russia in 2014 and stated that, for her, Crimea would always be a part of Ukraine.
However, she apparently changed her mind and now supports Russia in the war in Ukraine.
