Russia's justice ministry has banned an image of President Vladimir Putin in full makeup that has been frequently used in protests across the country.

The image has been added to the country’s list of banned “extremist” materials for “implying the supposed nonstandard sexual orientation of the president of the Russian Federation,” according to the justice ministry’s citation. As The Guardian pointed out, it was not clear which photo in particular the ministry had banned, as a social media search turns up a variety of images of Putin in drag.

Activists started Photoshopping images of Putin in drag after the government banned "gay propaganda" in 2013, which forbids people from equating heterosexual and homosexual relationships and bans the distribution of gay rights materials.

After the Wednesday ruling, activists took to social media to post images of Putin in drag.

North Korean officials reach out to Republicans for help understanding Trump: report

VIDEO: President Trump Speaks To U.N. General Assembly On North Korea

North Korean officials are reaching out to Republican-linked analysts in an attempt to better understand President Donald Trump, according to a report published Tuesday by The Washington Post.

>> Read more trending news

The effort began before Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jung Un started trading fiery rhetoric in the wake of the Hermit Kingdom’s repeated missile tests, the Post reported.

“Their number one concern is Trump,” a source, who was not identified, told the newspaper. “They can’t figure him out.”

The Post reported that at least seven invitations have been extended to Washington-based analysts, including Douglas Paal, an expert on Asia who served on the National Security Council under presidents Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush.

Paal, who is currently vice president for studies at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, told the Post that he declined North Korea’s request to arrange talks between its officials and “American experts with Republican ties.”

“The North Koreans are clearly eager to deliver a message,” Paal said, adding that North Korean officials wanted the meeting to take place in a neutral location, such as Switzerland. “But I think they’re only interested in getting out of the country for a bit.”

This image made on Tuesday, Sept. 26, 2017, from propaganda video released by North Korea, shows U.S. President Donald Trump. Military analysts say North Korea doesn't have the capability or intent to attack U.S. bombers and fighter jets, despite the country's top diplomat saying it has the right do so. They view the remark by North Korean Foreign Minister Ri Yong Ho and a recent propaganda video simulating such an attack as responses to fiery rhetoric by U.S. President Donald Trump and his hardening stance against the North's nuclear weapons program. Words say "Madman Trump in the 70th anniversary of the U.S. Air Force babbled that if there will be an attack on the North, the F-35 will lead the way" and "F-35, B-1B and Carl Vinson, lead the attack if you will. That will be the order you head to the grave." (DPRK Today via AP)(AP)
