NEWS OF THE WEIRD

SIZE MATTERS, COMRADE

Posted:

The downfall of Russia-sympathizing Ukrainian president Viktor Yanukovych in February (which eventually provoked Vladimir Putin’s retaliation against Ukraine) accelerated when his countrymen learned of his startlingly lush 
lifestyle (gold toilets, a private zoo) — and caught a video glimpse of a nude portrait Yanukovych commissioned of himself by artist 
Olga Oleynik. Yanukovych, a not-too-buff 63-year-old, was shown reclining and with an 
undersized male endowment. Oleynik told Agence France-Presse news service she’d done a similar portrait of Putin — more generously endowed — but was “afraid” to show it in public or say if it was actually commissioned by Putin.
