A 60-year-old priest of the Belarusian Orthodox Church is facing charges for obscenity following an incident at a railway station in Moscow. The priest may face having his priestly faculties removed after he allegedly flashed his genitals to passengers at the Baranovichi-Polesskiye railway station, according to Belarusian news agency BELTA.

The agency said that the priest was also drunk and it was not the first time he was detained for such public offenses. Investigators have also opened a criminal case against him on charges of hooliganism.
