‘Putinkinis:’ A Putin propaganda push too far?

The women appear to be top fans of Russian President Vladimir Putin

Published: Updated:

Pictures have emerged of young Russian women donning what has become to be known as a “Putinkini” this week.

Described as a propaganda push in support of the Kremlin, the women appear to be top fans of Russian President Vladimir Putin.

The images, reportedly taken at the Tavrida International Youth Meeting held this week on the Black Sea peninsula annexed from Ukraine by Russia in March, come at a time where Russia is being hit by international sanctions over the Ukraine crisis.

“Our wonderful girls decided not to hide their patriotism and show a photo of V.V Putin as one of their attributes - on their breasts,” a statement on the event's website explained.
