Holy Medvedev

Personality cult in Russia? Surely not

Muslim artist Robert Gabitov from St. Petersburg painted a portrait-“icon” of Russian president Dmitry Medvedev…The president has a falcon on his shoulder and a tree of life is growing behind him. The author thinks these symbols stress “holiness of the Russian President.”
