Crimea-Themed Putin T-Shirts Go On Sale Near Kremlin

T-shirts featuring Russian President Vladimir Putin's image have gone on sale at a department store on Red Square in Moscow. The campaign was organized by a pro-Kremlin group called "Vsyo Putyom" ("It's All Right"), a pun on the Russian leader's name. The designers said their work was inspired by Putin's "numerous victories on the international stage" in recent months. There are several different prints including Putin vacationing in Crimea and slogans calling him "The Politest Of People" in a reference to the euphemistic term "the polite people" used to describe the Russian soldiers who occupied Crimea in February.
