Sevastopol site “Primechaniya” reports that the huge graffiti of Putin on the side wall of a building has been damaged. The eyes of the Russian president have been scratched out.
During the night, someone probably used climbing equipment to come down from the roof and scratch out the president’s eyes.
Locals believe that this was planned; it was not a mere act of vandalism.
“The manager of this project is away, but we’ll send a team of artists to repaint the portrait as soon as possible.” declared the youth organization “Merezha” (Network), which initiated and created the graffiti.
The inscription reads “Welcome to your native harbor!” Putin’s portrait was painted by Moscow artists after the so-called Crimean referendum.
