- A bright red sculpture of Russian President Vladimir Putin appeared in Central Park this week.
- Kids quickly embraced the installation, covering it with sand and aiming their water guns at it.
- The sculpture was placed by a French artist in protest of the war in Ukraine.
Russian President Vladimir Putin was spotted riding a tiny tank in New York’s Central Park this week and was swiftly swarmed by kids — or at least, a statue of him was.
The bright red sculpture shows the Russian leader seated atop a miniature military tank in an almost childlike squat.
