An activist from the feminist group Femen has damaged a wax statue of Russian President Vladimir Putin at a Paris Museum.
Reports say the topless activist destroyed the statue with a wooden stake at the Grevin Museum on June 5, shouting 'Putin dictator."
The woman also wrote in red letters "Kill Putin" on the torso of the statue, before being taken away by police.
The Grevin Museum condemned "these acts of degradation."
Putin is scheduled to meet with French President Francois Hollande in the evening, before attending D-Day commemorations in France on June 6.
