A Russian politician stripped off and got into the shower after failing to turn off his Zoom camera during a disciplinary meeting for a fellow official.

Maxim Petlin, 48,  a member of the anti-Kremlin Yabloko party, was seen getting up from his desk, undressing and parading naked in front of the camera at his home in Yekaterinburg.

The other participants appeared to try not to focus on Petlin, who is the chairman of Yabloko’s Sverdlovsk branch, and continued their meeting as if nothing was happening.

But the footage, from a disciplinary hearing for a municipal MP, was leaked to Mash news outlet.

Asked about the ’embarrassment’ by URA.ru Petlin said: ‘Did I appear naked? What is this nonsense?

‘There was an online meeting today. I don’t seem to remember that I appeared naked.’

His party has not commented on the episode.

Eight years ago, his party stood by the then Ekaterinburg MP when he was convicted of extortion and sentenced to a three years in jail.

The party said the case against him had been ‘fabricated’ by the authorities and that Petlin was a ‘political prisoner’.

Petlin has denied the incident took place, telling URA.ru: 'Did I appear naked? What is this nonsense?
