(LONDON) — Russian President Vladimir Putin had a bit of an eye-popping run-in with a group of protesters.
It started out as a routine visit to a trade show in Germany, with Chancellor Angela Merkel. But then enter three topless protesters rushing towards him.
They were members of a women’s rights group and one had painted the word “dictator” on her belly, while another had “F*** Off Putin” written across her back.
When asked what he thought of the incident, Putin said, “I liked it.”
