Femen Protest In Kiev

For the first time since the most prominent Ukrainian women politician Yulia TymoshenkoYulia Tymoshenko faced charges of fraud and corruption, the country’s most controversial feminist group Femen stood by her side, and staged one more topless protest in Kiev.

This time, Femen activists climbed on top of a prison wagon outside the court where Tymoshenko trial was going on, removed their blouses, and denounced against Ukraine’s police and politicians, saying they were the ones who belong in custody.

Maybe I’m slow, but it doesn’t seem to jive well that they’re using their breasts to gain attention.
