Topless Protester Confronts Putin

Merkel was there, too.

Nothing says “down with Putin” like a topless protest. A bare-chested protester confronted the Russian president and Germany’s Angelina Merkel at a trade fair in Hanover. Written on the woman’s back was an obscene message for Putin. Two other women, who may have been from the feminist group Femen and were also bare-chested, shouted that Putin was a dictator (they’re really not pleased with the conviction of the punk band Pussy Riot). Russia has given Germany permission to punish and prosecute the act of “hooliganism.”
