Anti-Putin sign posted across from Kremlin

In the most recent episode of what has become the soap opera of the Russian presidential election, an activist group has posted a sign telling Putin to go away.  They are definitely not being subtle here – the sign went up across the Moscow River from the Kremlin.

The sign was taken down a few hours later, but you have to assume that someone in the administration saw it.

I will admit, I didn’t have much interest in the last few Russian elections (given the results seemed pretty predictable), but this election cycle has been interesting to watch thus far.
