So, this is an Only On Dreamwidth post, because I am posting something banned in Russia!!!
This picture has been banned in Russia - which is BRILLIANT because my friend V's husband created it! Ha ha! (Btw they don't live in Russia now and are not Russians, but they did live there for a number of years before).
Here it is, in all it's glory:

So there. :D
(I should add, though, that I feel very badly for the poor guy who was put in an asylum for displaying this and other anti Putin images. :( That's going back to Soviet tactics, for sure...)

I agree, I think the Yeltsin years were a hopeful time, but the corruption of the administration made Russia susceptible to Putin I think.

Lovely work of art. I don't know if you've ever seen the film Je Suis Femen? Very good film, more focused on Ukraine but still Russia as well.

I think I've read about this on FB earlier today.

They explain in the film more about that, but its told mainly from the side of Oksana and she's kind of on the outside of the group in a way, more an artist and shows what they went through and had to flee the country after doing a protest in Russia.

Nice! Reminds me of the Emcee from Cabaret. Although, that's an insult to Joel Grey...

Actually, that is a flattering image of Putin, if you think about it...

I just don't understand why this is considered offensive!

We are bombarded with really offensive images every day, nobody bats an eyelid!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I suppose one can do a whole dissertation about why mascara is more offensive than guns.
