Russian girls urged to strip for Putin’s presidencyJuly 18th, 2011 - 7:14 pm ICT by IANS
London, July 18 (IANS) In an online campaign, young Russian women have been urged to take off their clothes to support Prime Minister Vladimir Putin in the next year’s presidential vote, a lawmaker’s website has shown.
Called “Putin’s Army”, it features a video of a blonde student called Diana who struts along Moscow’s streets in high heels and a black suit before scrawling “I will tear my clothes off for Putin” on a white top in red lipstick and starting to undo her clothes, the Daily Telegraph reported Monday.
Inviting girls to strip off for Putin for the chance to win an iPad2, the support garnering campaign has come ahead of the March 2012 presidential vote.
Putin was the president between 2000-2008 before handing the reins over to his protege Dmitry Medvedev.
“The goal: For Putin to be president!” said a statement on its page on social networking site vkontakte.ru/armiaputina, Russia’s answer to Facebook.
During Russia’s Soviet era, nudity in advertising was a taboo.
