What poster are you talking about. Unidentified people found a banner covered in red paint between the Park Pobedy and Moskovskaya metro stations on October 18. Presumably, the poster depicted a man who was awarded the title of “Hero of Russia”. Whether the banner was somehow connected with the war in Ukraine, Fontanka did not specify.

According to investigators, an unknown advertising photographer poured water over the poster – a protocol was drawn up against him on “discrediting the army” and petty hooliganism. According to Fontanka, the police are deciding whether to open a criminal case against the man.
