Marina Voinova wasn’t looking for trouble, but she found it while searching for an address on Yandex Panorama, Russia’s version of Google StreetView.
According to Russia’s Life News, Voinova was looking for an address in her hometown of Perm, a Russian city some 850 miles east of Moscow, when she stumbled across a street shot of her fiancé kissing another woman. Yandex Panorama, unlike Google StreetView, doesn’t blur out faces, so there was no mistaking the fact that the man — identified only as Sasha — was cheating on her. Voinova told Life News (translated in the video above), “When Sasha came home, I immediately called him to the computer and asked him to find that address in the map. When the image loaded, Sasha’s face changed in color. I looked in his eyes, waiting for an explanation.” When Sasha was unable to provide a satisfactory answer, Voinova broke up with him. “At first I regretted searching for that address on the Internet,” Voinova said, “But I eventually realized that it was silly to blame the Web for my boyfriend’s unfaithfulness.”
According to the video, while Voinova still eschews Yandex, Russia’s largest search engine, she has recovered from her hatred of the internet enough to start online dating.
