What’s in the Russian President’s mind? Video shows the gay adventures of Vladimir Putin

A new viral video features a satirical cartoon depiction of Russian President Vladimir Putin, which shows the inner workings of the notorious Russian leader’s mind.

The video, exclusively shared on PinkNews, created by Mashed, the YouTube channel from Channel 4, shows a distracted Putin, whose mind wanders off to a land of unicorns and gay bars, as an advisor tries to persuade him to use gay people as scapegoats in their dictatorial campaign.

There is also a twist at the end, which we won’t spoil.

Yesterday, in real life, Putin was nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize – despite presiding over a rolling back of LGBT and human rights in recent years.
