Russia’s Defence MInistry is whipping up public enthusiasm for the country’s intervention in Syria.

It’s issued “T shirts emblazoned with a support Assad slogan and a picture of a Russian war plane.

At 20 euros they are not cheap…. but according to Russian web forums they’ve been flying off the shelves.

The shop owner says its a chance to show solidarity with the fight against Islamist extremists but its not the first time so-called political fashion has taken off in Russia. After the annexation of Crimea T-shirts were printed with a photo of President Putin.
