A Russian woman dumped her cheating boyfriend after she discovered him walking around affectionately with his ex-girlfriend on Yandex Maps — a map site very similar to Google Maps but powered by a Russian search engine.
Unlike Google Maps, Yandex doesn’t blur away faces of pedestrians in its Street View mode.
Marina Voinova was searching for an address on the site and switched to the Street View to get a better look at the building she was looking for when she discovered her boyfriend, Sasha, walking along the roadside with his arms wrapped around another woman.
“First I noticed a familiar silhouette,” Voinova said.
“First I thought, ‘how can someone else look so similar to my Sasha?’ I looked more carefully, zoomed in and saw that it was indeed him … I [realized] that he was lying and cheating on me all this time.”
According to the International Business Times, Voinova realized that the photos taken were not more than three years old, and, since her relationship with Sasha was going on five years, she knew that he had been cheating on her the whole time they were together. She was able to positively identify Sasha by a cast he was wearing on his hand, the result of a bone fracture that occurred the previous summer.
Yahoo! News reported that, when Sasha was confronted with the evidence, he immediately confessed to the infidelity and Voinova decided to end the relationship.
“I simply can’t understand how I could live with this man,” Voinova said.
