Russia Today reported today that a group of female activists called “Femen” successfully disrupted voting day in Russia. They activists removed their tops and attempted to take the voting machine used by front-running candidate Vladimir Putin after he cast his ballot.
In line with Femen’s modus operandi, the bare-chested women had slogans written across their bodies. This time they read, “Steal for Putin,” perhaps a parody on a pro-Putin campaign called “Strip for Putin,” in which young ladies calling themselves The Putin Army Girls encouraged others to send raunchy pictures and videos of themselves stripping in order to promote the re-election of the Russian President. It is a widely held belief throughout Russia that Putin has manipulated the election.
Here’s a video clip from the event:
