A 30 year old Ukrainian female politician criticized after her naked pictures were leaked online has hit back, saying the private, saucy snaps should be admired like beautiful "artwork".
According to Mirror, Beautiful Olga Lyulchak, 30, claims the collections of raunchy snaps were stolen when her iCould account was hacked.
The controversial photographs have been condemned in Ukraine.
However, for Ms Lyulchak, who is standing with former heavyweight boxing champion Wladimir Klitschko in the Ukrainian parliamentary elections on October 26, the shots should be considered as artwork.
"The world honours the great works of great masters such as Van Gogh, Titian and others," she said.
"They created naked beauty which was admired.
She added: "In our day and age woman who appear naked are considered vulgar or shameful.
"I can't understand it. I think they are pure art."
Ms Lyulchak is standing for Klitschko's Ukrainian Democratic Alliance for Reform (UDAR) party.
The leak is the latest in a series of hacks that have led to naked pictures of celebrities including singer Rihanna, reality star Kim Kardashian and actress Jennifer Lawrence going viral.
