A group of female models who posed naked on a Dubai balcony have all been banned from returning to the United Arab Emirates for five years after offending public decency.

The notorious "Butt Squad" were deported to Ukraine after a nine-day jail ordeal following footage of the shoot going viral online.

Model Yulia Ulyanochkina, 19, revealed their punishment as she gave an account of their nightmare on remand in prison as they waited to discover their fate.

Another revealed that a pregnant woman detained on an unrelated matter had died near them in the "barbaric" detention centre.

Experts say the naked models were lucky not to be jailed for six months.

Yulia said: "We have all been banned from entering the Gulf countries for five years."

She told Mash media in Russia: "The period of uncertainty was the most difficult when you sit and do not know whether you will be given six months or released."

Yulia had been the first into the cells after around 20 women posed nude for the balcony picture.

"I was put on a dirty mattress. I got hysterical," she said.

“The girls came one by one.

"Only then did we realise that we were deprived of our freedom. It was scary.

"The cells were just awful.

"There were a lot of prisoners, the air was humid, there was fungus in the toilets and a lot of hair.

"There was always a bright light in the cells, and no windows.

"We didn't know what time it was. There were no simple means of hygiene."

Another model, named Diana, said: "We were taken to a small cell, perhaps, two metres by two metres, with a very old mattress.

"All 12 of us sat on that mattress."

The 19-year-old said: "There was a pregnant woman who died in a different cell.

"She died, she was simply not provided help."

One more model on the controversial trip Irina Sotulenko, 23, said: "We did not know that there would be so many problems just because of naked butts….

"Imagine, one mattress, two blankets and 12 girls and they were screaming something in Arabic 'sharmuta'.

"We understood it means 'prostitute'.

"But we were only accused of showing our naked butts, nothing else, that was all."

Irina said: "Every 30 minutes there was a lineup to check no-one had fled.

"There was no toilet paper, just water.

"We finally bought toothbrushes on the fifth day.

"Sanitary pads were given on the third day.

"We were wearing the clothes that we were brought in.

"One of the girls had kidney problems but was not given pills."

Irina said: "The worst thing was the wardens – they were laughing at us."

Diana said: "One of them made a joke that one of our girls, who was in isolation because of coronavirus, had died.

"What kind of joke is that?"

One of the models remains in Dubai because of Covid-19.

Still in a Dubai cell is American-Ukrainian playboy Vitaliy Grishin, 41, who organised and financed the escapade.

He has been previously pictured with a string of famous names including Barack Obama – to whom he was a financial donor – Hillary Clinton, George Clooney, and Sylvester Stallone.

Detained, too, is a Russian man allegedly present when the shoot took place named Alexey Kontsov, 33, an IT company boss.

Both are accused of "violating the norms of public morality and organising an indecent photo session," said a statement from Kontsov’s Russian company.
