Putin admits ‘liking’ FEMEN topless protests

What shall women activists do when their voice is simply not being heard? Go topless, the members of the Ukraine's women's rights group FEMEN have decided.

While the Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin was discussing prices for Russian gas imports to Ukraine’s pro-Kremlin President Viktor Yanukovych, the topless women were protesting against his visit in the centre of Kiev.

"We won't sleep with Kremlin dwarfs," "You can't make us bend over that easily," read some of the placards they were holding.

"We are protesting againss the interference of the Russian representatives in the internal affairs of our country. After their visits, in Ukraine we see restrictions on media freedom and on the right to demonstrate, as is the case in Russia,” the FEMEN leader Anna Gustol was quoted saying.

In the meantime, Putin has agreed with the Ukranian authorities on joint venture to build a uranium processing plant in Ukraine. The talks on new gas supply agreement are still to be continued.

"We are ready to continue dialogue on all issues and I am sure we will always find solutions that satisfy both sides," Putin said after his meetings in Kiev.

About 80 percent of the Russian gas exported to the European Union goes through Ukraine’s pipeline system. While Russia wants a stake in the Ukrainian transit system, Ukraine aims for the lower price of imported Russian gas that would eventually foster its economy.
