Her brother, Taras, 20, said the family had no idea why she was visiting the city and were “shocked” when they found out what she had been up to in Dubai.
“She went on holiday, and then I don’t know what came next,” he said.
“Yes, she had planned a photoshoot there… But I had no more information about it.”
According to MailOnline, Yana is a law graduate who was allegedly unable to find a job in her chosen field.
She reportedly worked as a waitress, a hostess at a restaurant and then a brewery before starting as a model a year or so ago.
Yana showed her friends and family pictures of her breakfasts, swimming pool dips, and sports cars on her trip to Dubai.

A model who was at the mountain party but not in Dubai, called Valeria, confirmed about her friends on the UAE trip: “All the girls were ready for nude photography, but not more.
“It’s an open question why all of them did not check the laws of the country.

“The organiser and the photographer are of Ukrainian origin.”
