The wife of Russian president Vladimir Putin's chief spokesman has triggered outrage by performing a Holocaust-themed ice-skating routine on a Russian reality television show.
Navka's partner Burkovsky said that he was surprised by the negative reception of their routine by the internet.
Navka competed with her partner Andrew Burkovsjy on the Russian television show Ice age, the Daily Mail reported.
Although the performance was inspired by the Oscar winning film and was set to its soundtrack, many were nonetheless bothered by what was viewed as an inappropriate take on Jewish suffering. "Our children need to know and remember that bad time, which I hope, God willing, they will never know". The reality TV show, similar to Dancing With the Stars, pairs professional skaters with celebrities.
It is broadcast on Russia's Channel One, which is owned and controlled by the Kremlin.
