FEMEN stage Brussels protest against Putin

Activists from the self-styled women’s rights group, FEMEN, have staged yet another topless protest against Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Two protesters bared all in the Schuman district of Brussels, which is home to the European institutions.

Russia’s head of state is in the Belgian capital for talks with EU officials.

The activists claimed that Putin had been involved in orchestrating and fermenting the recent violence in Ukraine.

“The secret services and special services of Russia, disguised as the Ukrainian riot police, are now actively taking part in the suppression of the people protesting on Maidan Square,” said one of the two women.

FEMEN have held protests previously against the Ukrainian government, as well as religious institutions such as the Vatican.

The group was founded in Ukraine in 2008.
