A 'rich kid of Russia' has been condemned after dangerously drifting his rally car around a historic square in the middle of the night.
Dizzying drone video has emerged showing the car at high speed as it swerves from side to side past tourist attractions in St Petersburg.
It speeds past other vehicles in the street and drifts between parked cars while passing the Monument to Nicholas I, St Isaac's Cathedral and the 173-year-old Mariinsky Palace.
A blog called Rich Russian Kids shared the footage on Instagram with a taunt for police reading: "Where is my ticket please?"
The footage was shot earlier this week at night in St Isaac's Square in the historic city.
The streets are mostly quiet except for a few vehicles and the rally car tearing through the heart of the former capital of Imperial Russia.
The scene was captured by a drone that was flying just behind the car.
The Rich Russian Kids blog taunted police in the video caption, writing: "Well, let's write in the press, write me a fine .
"Where is my ticket, please?"
The driver was praised by car enthusiasts and slammed by viewers who considered the stunt to be dangerous.
One Instagram user wrote: "Dizzying. But the risk..."
Another user added: "Why do not you have enough intelligence to apply yourself to useful things?"
The video has been viewed more than half a million times.
