(AGI) Moscow - Three activists from the women's movement Femen
have appeared topless at the polling station where the
favourite in Russia's presidential elections, the Prime
Minister Vladimir Putin, had cast his vote a few minutes
earlier. The women shouted insults at the man likely to become
Russia's next President. The protest was announced by the
well-known Ukrainian feminist movement on its LiveJournal page.
The women, who were naked down to the waist, had slogans
written across their chests such as "I steal for Putin" and
"Thief 3", a reference to Putin's probable third term in
office, and at one point attempted to seize a ballot box amid
shouts of "Putin thief". The women were led away by police, who
were joined shortly after by riot police from OMON. .
