The pair are now facing up to 15 days “administrative arrest” and a fine, according to the Russian Interior Ministry.

The couple were asked to stop when angrily confronted by a flight attendant: “Come on, now, calm down and settle down quickly,” she said.

“The plane will land and you will get out of here.

“Get your penis in your pants. Right now.

“Get your hand off his penis. Right now.”

In other footage, the man is told by another fight attendant: “You know, the captain has been informed that you performed oral sex in a public place.

“There is video footage, and we will be forced to report you to police…

“You were performing unacceptable actions in a public place.”
