Even dolls are at risk

This amusing piece in the Guardian on 26 January 2012 picked up on a novel protest against the falsified election results.

In Barnaul (Siberia), as the local residents have been refused the right to protest against the election results, they came up with a novel way of getting their message across: they arranged on the snow various puppets (made from Lego, South Park, teddy bear stickers) holding up protest signs such as United Guinea (a mockery of Putin’s party United Russia, presumably comparing the corruption in Russia to that in parts of Africa).

The authorities are at a loss as how to respond to this display and have been seeking ways to even crack down on this.
