A picture of Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich's partner Dasha Zhukova has caused outrage after she was photographed sitting on a life-like mannequin of a half-naked black woman.
The picture was published on a Russian fashion blog called Buro 24/7 to accompany an interview with Zhukova about her new magazine fashion Garage.
Buro 24/7 published the photograph on their website and Instagram page but quickly removed it after it was roundly attacked on the internet.
Some people found the picture particularly insensitive as it was published on Martin Luther King Day.
A group called 'Organizing for Women's Liberation' were amongst those who complained about Buro 24/7's image, calling it "incredibly racist."
The picture caused outrage on Twitter with views ranging from "sick" to "awful, racist misogyny."

Police Confirms Arrest of Controversial Lagos Pastor, Sign Fireman over Alleged Ritual Murder Of A Virgin Girl
By Saharareporters, New York
Controversial Lagos miracle Pentecostal priest, Pastor Ofuche Ukoha (also known as) "Sign Fireman" has been implicated in a ritual murder scandal involving a boy in his church who strangled 12 year old teenage girl while trying to obtain feces from her for ritual purposes.
The disclosure of Pastor Fireman's involvement in the scandal was made by an eighteen year old boy paraded by the police in Lagos. The teenage suspect stated during the parade that he was sent on the ritual mission by Pastor Fireman.
He said he had always dreamt of becoming rich and had approached the pastor personally, after years of attending the church without his own financial miracle happening, Mr. Fireman reportedly told him the way to get his Sign for finance was to get the feces of a virgin girl. The suspect said Pastor Fireman promised him a reward of N100,000 for the assignment.
The suspect narrated how he sought and killed the 12 year old girl simply named "Bose", the daughter of poor lady on his street.
Confirming the incident to a Lagos correspondent this morning, Lagos Police PRO, Mrs. Ngozi Braide said Pastor Fireman was arrested on Tuesday five days after he was declared wanted by the police. She said investigation has commenced regarding his involvement.
She also said the outcome of the investigation would soon be made public.
With his church receiving hordes of miracle seekers every weekend, Pastor Fireman's church auditorium at Aguda, Surulere area of Lagos is reportedly notorious for using semi-nude female ushers.
The pastor was a subject of a UK-based Channel 4 documentary carried by journalistSeyi Rhodes of Channel 4's "Unreported World" in 2011.
