'Dear Vladimir, annex hearts not countries'

Russian President Vladimir Putin is in France for the Normandy Landings commemorations. In an interview with French television, he made a sexist comment about Hillary Clinton. He had been asked to react to her comment that he was akin to Adolf Hitler over Ukraine. Femen activists are clearly on Hillary's side - the radical feminist militant group has attacked a wax statue of Putin in Paris. One tweet says why not use sexism to seduce the Russian leader away from conflict.
