A model from Brazil who travelled to Ukraine as an aid worker has received death threats for posing on top of a Kremlin tank.
Liziane Gutierrez arrived in the country back in March and has since been sharing her journey on social media.
The 36-year-old was issued a stark warning after posting a vid of herself on top of the burnt out tank. Watch below:
After uploading the clip, she says an Instagram user sent her an eerie photo of a man holding a knife with the warning: "I'll find you."
However, the model hit back and responded: "Hey, I’ll post where I am. Just show up to become fertiliser."
Liziane told her 1.1 million followers: “I’ll tell you here what happened. I don’t want to cause any sensationalism and my fear is zero.
“I received this message on Instagram with a photo of this Russian soldier telling me to be careful because he would find me. In addition to this message, I received a picture of him with a knife in his hand. I was scared, of course, but I'm not afraid of being killed. I knew about these dangers, otherwise, I wouldn't even come, right?”
She also told her followers to not report the account: “We can't report his account. I need the account active, at least for now.”
Liziane after claimed that he blocked the model and deleted his messages.
The influencer also said that she will continue to pose with destroyed Russian military hardware while volunteering in Ukraine and celebrate every defeat Putin suffers.
In April, Liziane announced that she had fallen in love with a Ukrainian soldier after he made her a veggie meal in his bunker.
She told Brazilian media: "I met him while delivering aid at his barracks.
"We only talked about the aid and it continued like that until one day I had to sleep there because of the curfew and it ended up happening."
She added: "Never in my life could I have imagined meeting someone in the middle of a war!"
The influencer - who settled a civil lawsuit against US rapper Chris Brown for an alleged altercation in Las Vegas in 2016 - says she abandoned her luxury lifestyle to aid Ukrainian refugees in need of key essentials, such as food and medicine.
She said: "I decided to come because I couldn't just watch what was happening from my house and do nothing."
