Aяe you hevink pяoblem, Vladdy? On Monday April 8th, Vladimir Putin paid a diplomatic visit to the Netherlands. His visit comes on the eve of Russia enacting a new law which will give out hefty 12,000 Euro fines to anyone who displays "homosexual propaganda" in public spaces. The Dutch, being the socially progressive folk they are, were not happy with this development. Despite their objections, citizens of Amsterdam did their level best to make the bear-wrestling Russian overlord feel right at home, cordoning off whole neighborhoods of the city from tolerance and acceptance. Police also made sure that human rights stayed at least three blocks away from Putin at all times.
