A store calling itself “Peacekeeper” opened in New York City (video) in Manhattan on Tuesday, specializing in selling propaganda T-shirts which heroize Russian President Vladimir Putin and some mocking the famous V.J. Day in Times Square photograph to promote Crimea’s occupation. . The store was opened by Julius Kacinskis, who has Russian and Lithuanian roots but was born and lives in the US.

Propaganda T-shirts have become popular in Moscow, and recently a Russia-funded photojournalism art gallery was opened in the city to propagandize Russia’s position on Ukraine and democracy. The Russian president was heroized in a separate art gallery in commemoration of his birthday recently, showing the growth of his cult of personality.
