Russian President Vladimir Putin and U.S. presidential hopeful Donald Trump are kissing on the side of a barbecue restaurant in Vilnius, Lithuania.
The mural, painted by local artist Mindaugas Bonanu, was unveiled by the co-owner of the Keule Ruke, Dominykas Čečkauskas, on Thursday. It has swiftly gained attention in both Lithuanian and international media.
Putin and Trump are known for exchanging mutual admiration statements, with the Russian leader calling Trump “a very colorful person, tatented without any doubt” and Trump saying it was “a great honor to be so nicely complimented by a man so highly respected within his own country and beyond.”
I can tell you that the image has most certainly caught on in social media far beyond the Baltic states since it has shown up repeatedly on my Twitter feed and e-mail box.
Personally I have nothing against same sex PDA's but this one did make my stomach lurch just a little.
I imagine it will have an even more profound effect on the notoriously homophobic Vladimir Putin's gastric system.
