Vladimir Putin's election push kicked off by high-heeled 'soldiers'

They tottered nervously on high heels and wore pink shirts emblazoned with the likeness of their hero: Vladimir Putin. Meet Putin's Army, a new group aiming to get their man back into the Kremlin.

About 20 of Putin's teenage "soldiers" gathered in Pushkin Square in central Moscow at rush hour on Friday, shouting his name and singing the 2006 hit A Man Like Putin.

The gathering came less than a week after the group, organised via a Russian social network, released a racy video calling on "young, smart and beautiful girls" to join their ranks and support Putin for president – by tearing their shirts – in a provocative move renewing the debate on Putin's potential return to the Kremlin.

With parliamentary elections less than five months away, and a presidential vote set for next March, Russia's version of electioneering has entered full swing. In addition to social media-originated movements – another, called I Really Do Like Putin, held a carwash only for Russian-made vehicles on Thursday – full attention has been put on the All-Russia People's Front, an amorphous group created by Putin in May.

Obama’s campaign is being kicked off with high-heeled soldiers of a different variety, thanks to the repeal of DADT.

But why?

Ron Paul should hire Putin's campaign manager...I still wouldn't vote for him, but the entertainment value would ...rise ...considerably.

Wow! Feminine looking women. I thought they were extinct.

Note to self: must visit the former east bloc.

Between the ages of 18 and 26 Russian girls match up very well with those in any population on Earth. After that the drop off, due to diet and the stress of life with uncaring and high alcohol consumption boyfriends and husbands, can be striking.

But their "Golden Age" looks can be freaking unbelievable.

I know a little something about Russian women. These chicks have another five years before they’re 250 pounds and wearing babushkas. Please don’t hate me for saying that. It has to do with potatoes and fried lard.

I see two clocks on the buildings in pic #1 of post #3. They seem to be out of sync.

Is there anything else worthy of note to be seen in this thread?

Good one, and true.

Russian women are gorgeous when they’re young, but when they’re around forty or so, meh.......

Not so much.

Aside - From the looks of many of those young women it seems that the Germans were rather prolific with their raping in Russia in WWII.

In fact Germans were a numerous minority in Russia since about mid-17th century long before WW2.
Some 40 years ago they were still had German villages and small towns in Kazakhstan and Bashkiria and up to half of population couldn’t ever speak Russian.
A lot of them repatriated to Germany for economic reasons since 1991 but also a number of them migrated to Russia from former Soviet muslim republics.
