On March 6th, members of the feminist group FEMEN demonstrated in Times Square against Russia's occupation in Ukraine. FEMEN was founded in Ukraine in 2008, and is known for elaborate demonstrations that feature nudity. The protest was one of several demonstrations that FEMEN has carried out this month throughout the world, protesting the affront to Ukrainian sovereignty posed by Russia's occupation of Crimea.
"Putin is not scared of the US or EU — he is playing games," Inna Shevchenko, a member of FEMEN, told VICE News. "What he is scared of really is when people are coming and saying, 'Fuck you Putin,' and that's what we're doing right now."
