Moscow: The Russian capital will host a charity strip show to help homeless people survive the upcoming winter, a charity organisation said.The event, organised by the non-profit Spravedlivaya Pomoshch (Fair Aid) group, will feature professional strippers shedding winter clothes on stage Saturday night. This is part of an effort to save hundreds of Muscovites left without shelter for various reasons.

The host, the American Bar & Grill restaurant, will open its doors Saturday night for anyone who would be willing to part with a piece of winter clothing, like a coat, or a hat, or just a pair of warm socks, the organisers said.

The charity event will also collect medicine and money donations for medical treatment of the homeless.

Elizaveta Glinka, head of the group, said more than 100 homeless people died last winter while sleeping in makeshift shelters on the streets of Moscow.
