Death to Putin

In a bizarre but effective political protest, gravestones bearing the image of President Vladimir Putin have been springing up all across Russia, listing the year of his death as 2019. The epitaph reads: “Incredible thief and liar. Political corpse.”

The group which has pinned its name to these protests is Agit Russia, whose spokesman, Grigory Kudryavtsev, says: “What we wanted to say was that Putin died for laws that went against the people, his constant lies and his appalling period in power.”
