Of Course There’s a Creepy Guy Behind Femen

File under “retrospectively logical bummers”: There’s a shady male puppet master behind Femen, Ukraine’s topless feminist activists. A new documentary about the group, Ukraine Is Not a Brothel, by 28-year-old Australian Kitty Green, reveals that Victor Svyatski, a self-described “consultant” to Femen, quietly founded and still controls the group. (Disturbing pictures of him after he was beaten by Ukraine secret service (he says) for his involvement in  Femen here.) “It’s his movement and he hand-picked the prettiest girls because the prettiest girls sell more papers,” Green tells the Independent. “The prettiest girls get on the front page ... that became their image, that became the way they sold the brand.”
