Today’s presidential elections in Russia promised to be boring (since the results were known in advance). But the day was saved by girls from the Ukrainian protest group FEMEN who made an unusual action to express their attitude towards Vladimir Putin.
Motto of the group is “I came, I undressed, I conqured” paraphrased from the famous Latin sentence attributed to Julius Cesar – “Veni, vidi, vici” (“I came, I saw, I conquered”). And in alignment with their motto, the group’s members organize topless protests hoping to attract attention to their… ideas.
This time the girls arrived to the polling station #2079 in Moscow (shortly after Vladimir Putin cast there his vote) with the intention to steal the ballot box. What came out of that – you can see in the pictures below.
Anti-Putin protest by FEMEN
From the group’s blog:
Voice for a voice, tooth for a tooth!
Activists of FEMEN tried to steal the ballot box into which twenty minutes earlier Prime Minister Putin put his ballot, apparently marking “V” against his vile name. The attempt to steal votes was accompanied by chants ”Putin is thief!” and “Steal for Putin!”.
Purpose of the action “Steal for Putin” is to clearly accuse the Kremlin gang in distortion of the electoral process through manipulative rigging of the results. FEMEN makes a call to the international community not to recognize the Kremlin’s ”triumph” victory of Putin, and to the Russian people – to trump heavily on the tail of Kremlin rats. Participants of the action – Ukrainian citizens Anna Deda, Oksana Shachko and Irina Fomina were grabbed and taken to the Moscow’s Gagarin district police station. Activists are ready for any “legal” assessment of their action, up to the initiation of the criminal case.

Comments of Russian netizens
Jaeger1995: Bitches, your luck I wasn’t around there. You would return without teeth to your Nezalezhnaya.
[Note: “Nezalezhnaya” in Ukrainian means “Independent”. In this context it means simply “Ukraine”]
putin_pidor (responding to the comment above): You just confirm the theory that for Putin [vote] only faggots and pedophiles. And now, go f… yourself.
[Note: the nick of this commenter can be translated as “putin_faggot”]
anton2ov: What cool girls live among us! Ones make show at the CSC [Christ the Savior Church], others steal Putin’s ballot box.
What I admire is that they are not afraid.
Although, after Belarus, they probably don’t fear anything.
[Note: 1. Show at the CSC refers to the shocking performance of the female punk group “Pussy Riot” in Moscow Cathedral. 2. Belarus events refer to the alleged abduction of FEMEN members by Belarusian KGB.]
donobrother (responding to the comment above): What should they fear? ) People will look, shrug, smile and pass by. Or do you think that for flashing bare breasts they will be captured and tortured, tortured, tortured! )
ma_77: No brains, no tits… whores.
Kosmopes: Good job, girls. Thanks!
Nikklim: Idiots. Will get administrative [punishment], expelled from the country and get the passports ruined. And what did they achieve besides PR? Conclusion – “not passed”, and tits are so so.
sbdn101: Russian don’t deserve to be helped. Let them f*** in Putin’s shit. What the people is, such is the government.
[Note: just to remind – all comments are left by Russian netizens]
feel_like_a_sir: Russian genetic slaves. Even Arabs overthrew their tyrants.
akteonx: Fuckards :) How will it help? All they want is to flash ))
j_michalych (responding to the comment above): Fuckard here is you. Girls showed that the authorities are thieves and can only steal. And you just stare at the tits…
love_rushka: Three girls f***ed the whole pack of bloodhounds. That’s the failure of the whole system of country’s security if they couldn’t intercept the girls on their way to the polling station.
anttro: Though human stupidity is infinite, it’s probably very difficult to find the worse use of boobs.
maksi2278: Elections in Russia have nothing to do with Ukrainians. First, solve your own problems, then come here.
aromapractic: The girls need marriage, and the sooner – the better.
Nikolay Antipov: These corrupt whores, who are their sponsors, I’d like to know.
sbdn101 (responding to the comment above): State Department, of course.
[Note: not sure, if the last response was a joke or not, but the funny thing is that US State Department is often cited by Russian nationalists as the dark power responsible for many Russia’s troubles]
