We might have been a little sh*tty in our depiction of the 2014 Winter Olympics host nation, but it’s all been in good fun (mostly because we’re not there to see the horrors in first hand). But 2011 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue cover girl and international supermodel Irina Shayk is doing everything she can to combat the bad press and bring Mother Russia back into good standing–starting by posing with a pair of Olympic memorabilia gloves on her chest.
There’s no photographer credit given in the photo she originally posted to Instagram (@irinashayk), but we’d be less than surprised if Putin was behind the whole thing. It’s just too bad she’s not an Olympic athlete, otherwise we could add her to our list of Female Winter Olympians Who Posed Nude.
Here are some more photos of one of the sexiest Russian women.
