The red lettering on the woman’s chest says  ‘Kill Putin’. She was screaming “Putin is a dictator”. 

The “murder in the wax museum” had taken place the same day President Vladimir Putin was to arrive in France for D-Day anniversary events.

“Police arrested the activist shortly after the attack, which happened near statues of US President Barack Obama and recently abdicated Spanish King Juan Carlos, both of which escaped without a scratch,” Le Parisien reported.Putin

Predictably, Russians who cared to express their opinion about this “crime of passion” reacted in accordance with their political, ideological, geo-economic and various other views, feelings, convictions and inclinations.

Reaction of Vladimir Putin and other world leaders  (real, not made of wax) was not immediately known.
