Among history’s many rather unorthodox methods of protest, the actions of the French Feminist group, Femen, have to rank as one of the more peculiar. Femen, already relatively well known for their topless protests, targeted Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych, in their latest opposition stand.

As IB Times, “Five French women came out in protest against Ukraine’s president… in the French  capital in front of the Ukrainian Embassy.” Having their breasts exposed, the women “appeared to be urinating on photographs of Yanukovych, which were placed on the pavement.”

This graphic display of outrage comes in the wake of Ukraine’s recent refusal to sign a deal with the European Union that would greatly expand open trade and less stringent travel restrictions.

Following Yanukovych’s rejection of the long discussed negotiation, a crowd of about 1,000 protesters in Ukraine gathered to protest the president’s decision. Many in that crowd were soon arrested or assaulted by the police, leading Femen to express their outrage.

While not addressing the arrests, Yanukovych explained that “his country could not afford to sacrifice trade with Russia,” who obviously opposed the EU deal. With the knowledge that their cause is just, I suppose we should admire Femen’s sense of originality in their methods.
